On Windows, the directory for object files can be called:

  oo            # GCC build, non-opt
  oo-spd        # GCC build, optimized
  obj           # MSVC build, non-opt
  obj-spd       # MSVC build, optimized

I don't know why, but I imagine it's to ease testing patches on both

Noise is not a problem.  This was, I think:

  These explicit ids have no corresponding file:
  Duplicated ids among each group of files listed here:
  lib-src/ctags.c       i_8a9b748d-390c-4922-99db-2eeefa921051

In Un*x environments ctags.c is a link to etags.c, I think; on Windows,
ctags.c is copied from etags.c.

Yes, I understand why.  But my use case is a bit different.  I build
Emacs fairly often, either normal make or bootstrap (in fact I bootstrap
at least daily, just to check that it works), and I never do a release
tarball or pass my build to other people.  So it is *much* faster for me
to build in place; I avoid a lot of copying 'round (it also saves me
disk space, but that is moot).
