The way that checkstyle has set up is the use of filters.
You define all the checks and then you define filters that
filter out the error messages generated.

See http://checkstyle.sourceforge.net/config.html#Filters

I however agree with you that there should be a better way.
The current system is awkward and requires more than one
file (which has issues with locating that separate file).

For some of my suggestions on the subject see:
