Re: [PATCH] fvwm reproducibility patch

My concern is with the pkgsrc maintenance burden of carrying patches, if
they belong upstream, and if they don't allow us to actually get
reproducible builds.  That was making me think about the general issue
and having a way to get reproducible builds for a few packages, before
we start applying changes to many packages.  As time goes on, the rest
of the world is moving to reproducible builds as normal, and being on
the leading edge without actually getting reproducibility seems to be
accepting pain for not actually getting the benefit.

As I tried to say earlier, for a small number of packages, I don't think
it hurts in any measurable way to do this, and I don't object.
