ah!

Yes, but https://reproducible.debian.net/dbd/encfs_1.7.4-5.debbindiff.html 
doesn't show any other difference, same for bacula. So is this a bug / missing 
feature in debbindiff? 

Maybe the issue title is not helpful, but to me it still seems like a 
trackworthy category even or maybe especially as we dont know yet what it 
is...

So maybe rename randomness_in_gnu_build_id to undefined_randomness_in_binary? 
or ..._elf_binary?


cheers,
