Code review passes! I pushed an untested commit that should repair offline mode building vs the dependency on NTP. Not sure if that breaks the use of
TAILS_DATE_OFFSET in offline mode, bit I guess there was a reason for introducing NTP in the same commit?

I might merge this into feature/stretch today or tomorrow, depending on the outcome of #11983. We'll see!

I don't think it will break it. We'll see.

Yes, when introducing stuff about the build time, I wanted to ensure that the build really happens with the expected time, i.e. the correct current time (when
TAILS_DATE_OFFSET is not set) or something based on the correct current time (when
TAILS_DATE_OFFSET is set), instead of "whatever time the VM believes it is" :)
