It means that for example you can configure and build nmh in various
different ways without the generated object files conflicting with
each other. It's also nice if you're working with a CVS tree because
it means you're not creating lots of .o files in your CVS tree.
It also means that you can keep your source code on a remote
filesystem and build on a local one, which for some automated build
systems is a big win.
