It's because you are compiling in tree. For VLC (and many other projects), we recommend to build out of tree.

$ cd vlc
$ mkdir build-linux
$ cd build-linux
$ ../configure <your_options>
$ make

Then, you won't have your git polluted and you can have more than one build configuration (example: build-asan/   build-linux/  build-win32/  build-win64/).
