While working on the "reproducible builds" effort , we have noticed
that some packages (like latex2html) use one of the netpbm utilities in
their process, leading to unreproducible output (due to the use of the
random generator, seeded from a time() call).
To solve this kind of issues, it would be nice to make netpbm support
the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment variable .
See the attached patch for a proposed solution.
