Dear Maintainer,

While working on the “reproducible builds” effort [1], we have noticed
that some packages (like kannel) use fig2dev in their building process,
resulting in timestamps in postscript files that break reproducibility.

To solve this kind of issues, it would be nice to have transfig support
the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment variable [2].

See the attached patch for a solution to this issue.

Alexis Bienvenüe.
