While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed that mc could not be built reproducibly. It embeds the current date into the mcedit manpage during build.

Ok, I think that I can now see what went wrong here: Debian used to patch mcedit manpage, and so, mtime of the manpage file was set to the current time during the build. Our build system faithfully hardcoded this into the resulting man file.

Since then, however, I've upstreamed the patch and it was removed from 3:4.8.17-1, so I'm really wondering why it is still not working for you...
