In my experience, it is a very bad idea to store any "generated" files
in the source control for a project. In other words, if the project
contains everything to build foo.o, foo.o shouldn't be checked in. That
can cause all sorts of subtle and even not-so-subtle problems.

But if foo.o comes from outside the project, it may be reasonable to check
it in (possibly even if you have the project that does generate it in a
separate repository).
