[opensuse-buildservice] Feature request: redefine __DATE__ and __TIME__ macros
Hi,

during a build of openjdk I got the following error

java-1_6_0-openjdk.x86_64: W: file-contains-date-and-time
/usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so
Your file uses __DATE and __TIME__ this causes the package to rebuild
when
not needed

I assume the correct fix would be redefine them by the actual commit
date and time. Maybe Build Service should define __commit_date
and __commit_time macros, which would be used in CFLAGS. And in ideal
case both can be redefined in default %optflags, like this

'%{?__commit_date:-D__DATE__=%__commit_date}' \
'%{?__commit_time:-D__TIME__=%__commit_time}'

What do you think?
