Hi!

On #bootstrappable, mid-kid reported that =E2=80=98binutils-mesboot0=E2=80=
=99 in
commencement.scm lacks =E2=80=98--enable-deterministic-archives=E2=80=99.  =
So I checked
if this had an effect by running:

  guix build -e '(@@ (gnu packages commencement) gcc-core-mesboot0)' \
     --check -K

and yes, it does:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ diff -ru /gnu/store/ri28kdl41bb76qjr4cyarylw7kxpvfxy-gcc-core-mesboot0-2.=

Apparently Binutils 2.14 didn=E2=80=99t have =E2=80=98--enable-deterministi=
c-archives=E2=80=99
so we=E2=80=99ll have to patch it.

There are a few other Binutils variants in commencement.scm that we=E2=80=
=99ll
have to check.

Ludo=E2=80=99.
