Sure, why not. I think test/regression is an exception, though.
I also often put .class files there, because using javac's -d switch
for testing is often too much of a hassle.

What many people do is to build in a different tree than the source tree.
Keeps sources and object files cleanly separated and does not produce
.depend or Makefiles in your source tree. Has a lot of other advantages,
like being able to build different configure options or target architectures
from the same source without getting into a jungle of symlinks, being able
to build on a non-filesaved scratch or local filesystem, etc.
