nhc98 gets round the problem in a slightly different way: at
installation time, just copy the .a archives preserving their
datestamps. I use
tar cf - libFoo.a | ( cd $DEST; tar xf - )
but a simpler
cp -p libFoo.a $DEST
would probably work as well, if tar is not available on the end
Remember you must still have run ranlib previously at /build/
