Yes, that was oversight, due to several restarts of rebase session
(I guess due to mess generated with combination of --autosquash and git 
Now finally applied to this commit in branch as commit

That was not a problem for me, due to the fact I _always_ use 
out-of-source build, and all artifacts generated separately under 
${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/third_party/c-dt/, and such artifacts
inside of source tree problem observed only when you do (not very 
idiomatic) in-source build. cmake generated Makefile overwrite original 
c-dt Makefile.

[While we are here, could you please remind me why we recommend to use 
in-source build in our documentation?
And not prefer the recommended and used by majority of industry for what 
matter out-of-source build?]

We could rather may not influence how and where artifacts will be 
generated from inside of our own c-dt/CMakeLists.txt, we should rather 
modify the way how it get used, like, not include it via simple 
add_subdirectory(which is exactly defining this 
${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/third_party/c-dt, which would be equal to 
${CMAKE_CURRENT_SOURCE_DIR}/third_party/c-dt for in-source build, but 
rather use some ExternalProject_Add() techniques, which allows to 
redefine generated and binary files localtion. Let me check what is the 
easiest way here...
