Dear Maintainer,

autoloads files embed a timestamp. To get a reproducible build [1] for
software packages that build-depend on emacs (including emacs24), it
would be great to make this timestamp honoring the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH
environment variable [2], that is set to the last debian/changelog entry
date when building binary debian packages.

Please find attached a proposed patch for this.

Alexis Bienvenüe.
