Hi,

Whilst working on the "reproducible builds" effort [0], we noticed that eb 
could not be built reproducibly.

This is due to the use of faketime affecting the mtimes of the resulting files, 
meaning that sometimes the manpages are installed and sometimes not. The 
solution is to drop the calls to faketime entirely as help2man has been fixed 
to use SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH.

Patch attached.
