 Interesting.  I'm tempted to ask how you discovered this, but since
glibc scares me to death at the best of times, I wont ;-)

 Do you have a way of either altering the build (for testing builds)
to remove the timestamp, or do you have a way of breaking out the
archive contents to compare them ?

 Last time I looked, google knew nothing about it, and 'file' still
thinks it's some sort of PDP-11 thing.
