Cmake discovers that the path that you point it to ('..') already 
contains a configured setup (I think it looks for CMakeCache.txt), and 
just reconfigures that build again.

If it does not fins a buidl where you point it to, it creates a new in 
the $CWD.

Not so inutitive.

That's why you should never build in-source... :-)
