Delete it!  The problem you're seeing is that xcodebuild is reading preferences
from that file when it should be pulling them from com.apple.Xcode.plist, the
standard Xcode preferences.  The situations under which xcodebuild.plist gets
created are something of a mystery, but appears to be the result of a bug in
xcodebuild itself (<rdar://problem/5585899>).

The existence of this bogus preference file is likely to cause other subtle
issues beyond the obvious build directory problem, so I don't think your patch
is the appropriate workaround.  A more direct approach may be to look for the
existence of this preference file and warn the user, or perhaps even
automatically remove it.
