I suggest you adjust the platform builder so that the created files are
put in a separate folder, not where the source files are located. I know
that it's possible (had to use it once myself for a project).
That way, you can ignore just the top folder (e.g. 'output') and you're
done. If you then still want to have some of those generated files under
version control, write a post-build-step script which copies that file
back to your source folder.
This also leads to a much 'cleaner' and organized folder structure in
your project.
