[pypy-dev] Why isn't PyPy compiling itself not the same as CPython?

This may be a known issue, but it's a little worrying.

I compiled PyPy with CPython, and I got a different binary than when I
compiled it with itself:

-rwxrwxr-x 1 swenson swenson 59314173 2012-03-11 17:45 pypy-c*
-rwxrwxr-x 1 swenson swenson 59297884 2012-03-11 18:52 pypy-c2

I know that the final check with GCC is that it compiles itself with
itself, and checks that it gets itself.

Is there some randomness in translate.py?
