sorry for the delay; been very busy.

it might affect the timestamp, but not the size, unless your install is stripping
symbols or it was using libtool. rancid does not use libtool.  you can test the
strip premise by removing -s from install in bin/Makefile:

INSTALL_STRIP_PROGRAM = $(install_sh) -c -s

It is possible that your environment has something else that alters the elf
header, eg: set lib search paths.  160b is a small difference; so perhaps.
