Yes, but are you running a current toolchain? I just fixed that bug yesterday

Well, they kill the old functionality, so they should be re-written not
to do this.

- ARFLAGS should be updated to reflect reality.
- The D flag should be added to ARFLAGS if we are doing repeatable builds
  (the default)
- Ranlib -t should take a -D too, and become a noop in that case (as the code
  already does).
