Pull request on Abraca project which has the fix

The audio/abraca port is not reproducible. As part of reproducible-builds effort, the port should be reproducible and should not depend on build environment. The waftools/man.py file has gzip which has current system date in metadata and makes the build not reproducible. Please see the below url to know more about reproducible-builds project.

Thanks for the information.

Please allow me some time for testing.

Hi,

I tested the suggested patch, which is quite simple and works, in the sense the port builds correctly.

The generated packages are different though, and I suspect to get reproducible build I'd need this in my ports tree:

to get a correct test for the package reproducibility.

Am I correct?
