I didn't bother because it's easier to get correct without worrying about
people reading output they shouldn't need to be reading.

No, please don't generate them outside of the directory they are used in. 
How would "make clean" work?  Are you sure that all makes will accept a
left-hand target which is out of the current directory?  They're an
extension of the C file that they're included in, they shouldn't be in a
common include directory. 

-I. is implicit, if it isn't the compiler is broken -- OR someone has used
-I- (gcc-lingo) in which case they deserve the brokenness they've created,
and should fix their CFLAGS.  Remember that in ages past, apache-1.2, we
used -Iregex and had absolutely no problems with stuff that was in the
current directory.
