Feature #5630: Reproducible builds
Test building an ISO with a fake system time set in 2018
... in order to check if it matches an ISO built without faking the time, i.e. whether the build year variation breaks reproducibility.
Performing this test earlier in 2017 is too painful due to various indices and keys having expired.
dateoffset build option to do this.

Today, 2017-12-12, I did a build with
dateoffset=+60, i.e. faking the build date as 2018-02-10. The resulting ISO image was identical to the one I got when building without
dateoffest, so we're good!
