creating unique urls for binary packages

A few days ago we ran into a situation where some packages were
rebuilt but not given new names, causing pkgin and friends to be upset
about checksums of files not matching pkg_summary because had the packages cached from the previous build.

There are a few ways to resolve this, but the easiest one is to have
the client (pkgin) append a unique identifier (like the build date) to
the package's url:

when it fetched that package.
