Description

The automake manual [0] suggests build as the build directory. This directory is not included in the git ignore list which makes git status complain. If this is not the default build directory, document which directory is.

After reading several articles (such as http://voices.canonical.com/jussi.pakkanen/2013/04/16/why-you-should-consider-using-separate-build-directories/), i have come to the conclusion that it is better to keep the build directory outside the source directory. Because the use of separate build directories is already supported, this ticket is invalid.
