Surely you should be able to modify the build system to cope with this?

I've done this upstream quite a while ago, mostly because I needed to be
able to build hostapd and wpa_supplicant without 'make clean' inbetween
and with proper dependencies figured out for each build, but I guess one
of the side effects of that was allowing duplicate filenames.

I don't think that upstream really needs to concern itself with your
out-of-tree build system...
