What do you mean, "leave it in the source tree"?  Since you're telling 
build to ignore it, I assume that's just for your own use, not for users 
of your package.  And what did you run check on, the tarball or the 
directory?  If you ran it on the tarball, then there's something wrong 
with your tarball, because it shouldn't be there (you said to ignore 
it).  If you're running check on the directory, then ignore the NOTE, 
because it shouldn't appear when you run it on the tarball.
