New submission from Dave Malcolm <dmalcolm at redhat.com>:

I'm attempting to fix up the build in my Fedora/RHEL packages of Python to preserve timestamps of .py files as far as possible during the build, so that .pyc/.pyo files end up with predictable embedded mtime values and thus predictable hashes.

Am attaching a patch to the py3k branch which adds a "-p" option to the Tools/script/pathfix.py script, which makes it preserve the mtime of the input files.
