#11111: Enable deterministic builds (Linux)
 Reporter: Jens Richter <jens.richter@…> | Type: Feature Requests
   Status: new | Milestone: To Be Determined
Component: None | Version: Boost 1.57.0
 Severity: Optimization | Keywords:
 Building static libraries under Linux is not reproducible as the resulting
 libs have different md5sums every time.

 The problem seems to be in gcc.jam which calls ar/ranlib without the
 'deterministic' options.

 A trivial patch is attached.

 It would be nice if the boost build system could support reproducible
 builds. This is a first step.
