Allow to override build date

Authored by bmwiedemann on Aug 7 2017, 5:41 AM.

Description

Allow to override build date

Summary:
Allow to override build date
for distribution packages that use autoreconf
to recreate the configure script

See https://reproducible-builds.org/ for why this is good
and https://reproducible-builds.org/specs/source-date-epoch/
for the definition of this variable.

Note: This patch will work with GNU date. If BSD date support is
important, a more complex patch needs to be done.
