I think clang introduced -fdebug-prefix-map in 3.8.0 (see
https://bugs.debian.org/819185) and afl build-depends on clang-3.7.

I assume that it's the reproducible-builds toolchain that's adding the
-fdebug-prefix-map option to CFLAGS, right?  That's good -- it should
help avoid variations in the generated binaries due to build path alone,
so please keep it!  seems like the right fix here is either to build afl
against a newer version of clang, or to resolve #819185 by backporting
the option to clang-3.7.

I don't know what this means, sorry!
