Hi!

While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that remake could not be built reproducibly.
The generated info page embeds a timestamp of the last modification
date. Because a patch is applied to the texinfo source, the modification
date changes to the build date.

The attached patch resets the timestamp back to the changelog date
to get a reproducible result.

Regards,
 Reiner
