.dir-locals.el isn't related specifically to "building Emacs from
sources".  It applies to all editing of the checked-out Emacs sources
with Emacs.

Whether it is good or bad to have these .dir-locals.el files is
another issue and I see no need to discuss it now.  My point is only
that it is a not similar to the issue at hand, and not directly
