Hi!

While working on the “reproducible builds” effort [1], we have noticed
that libxslt embeds timestamps when generating documentation.

We have a proposal for using a deterministic timestamp [2] (based on
the latest debian/changelog entry) which is contained in the environment
variable SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH (currently exported by debhelper in our
experimental framework).

The attached patch proposes a way to use this variable to get
reproducible timestamps when generating docs, if the variable has been
set (if not, it falls back to the old behavior).
