It shouldn't.  That's where the resulting binary gets installed (or a debug build in products/debug/cogspurlinuxhtARM etc).

That's what I've been using, and I find it unsatisfactory too.  I don't like the automake system and want to replace the whole thing with Gnu make makefiles (as is used in the win32 and MacOS builds) which would result in more sharing between the production, assert and debug builds plus accurate dependency information for reliable compilation, and the possibility of making a valid cogspurlinuxhtARM directory tree in the build directory and hence (again as I do in the win32 and MacOS builds) running the executable in the build directory instead of from products.
