Some people use different top-level directories and tie together the
deliverables in the build system.
For example, consider a system where there's one program and one
library. The program developers need the library, but don't work on it.
The program developers have clients allowing them to read and write the
program. They all use the same library client, which is on an
NFS-mounted volume to which no NFS clients have write access. The build
system puts all the output wherever the program is.
This may not be terribly clear to you. Sorry. Difficult to write clearly today.
