[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] configure: add --build-date and --build-time options

Debian tries to make binary packages build reproducible [1].

FFmpeg embeds date and time in the program and documentation, which 
makes it hard to have binary reproducible packages.

The attached patch allows to specify the build date and time to use with 
a configure option, solving this problem.

Best regards,
