it's surely progress on the gcc/clang side of things but dropping the
build path from the .buildinfo files would be a huge step *backwards*
for reproducibility…

my point was: I think we still need the build path in the .buildinfo files.

(And btw, this (build path in buildinfo files) is not what *this* bug report 
is about. but it's related.)

Also, c/c++ packages today only make up a small portion of the archive.
Probably this famous someone should do a rebuild of the archive, using
our toolchain (and this patch), using arbitrary build pathes.
