Theoretically, I believe that identical builds are worth it.

But I just realized that Andreas' patch does it the wrong way, IMHO: it
include the full path in the resulting binary. With the current tree, the
source path arrives in the final binary, even the stripped one. This is
severely wrong as it leaks private information.
