While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that oss4 could not be built reproducibly.

The attached patch fixes several issues:
- Use system txt2man in upstream build script (build.sh), which supports
- Use SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH for the generated build-id.
- Sort files in modules tarball, fix permissions and timestamps.
- Fix ordering issues in some other places.
