Hmm, very obscure.

Since everything must be compiled on the *local* machine, it doesn't 
make sense to import (from the repo) an Makefile.compiled from a 
*different* machine. Like it doesn't make sense to import the compiled 
(binary) files, that match the imported Makefile.compiled.

I'm not sure about Makefile.fpc, which also is auto-created.
