Details

Description:

As can be see in the test framework the build date is embedded in the dfrotz binary which makes the package not reproducible.

[1] https://tests.reproducible-builds.org/archlinux/community/frotz/frotz-dumb-2.50-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.html

Steps to reproduce:

* Build the package twice and compare with diffoscope
* run make in the source, copy the output binary and make it again and compare.

Solution:

In the PKGBUILD give a BUILD_DATE argument to make to set a fixed build date using SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH when rebuilding.
Or send a patch upstream to support SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH in the makefile. [1]
