Yes and no: Yes as far as the actual file location is concerned.
No when considering where it gets generated: I generally consider
it risky to generate files outside of the directory where make
currently runs. There may be good reasons for certain exceptions,
but personally I don't see this case as good enough a reason.

Somewhat related - if doing as you suggest, which Makefile's
clean: rule should clean up that file in your opinion?

Nevertheless, if there's general agreement that keeping the file
there is better, I'd make the change and simply ignore my unhappy
feelings about it.
