Ok, that's fair... but in that case, I think you would want to enforce
(or strongly suggest) it, so I sent you another patch set that uses
AX_ENABLE_BUILDDIR to store build artifacts on a build/ subdirectory
if an in-tree build is attempted.

Regardless of the solution you pick, I think keeping .gitignore up to
date is important to prevent mistakes when working with the git tree.

Let me know what you think.
