A few people have suggested this.  System clock runs UTC, and it uses ntp; 
as far as I can tell, there were no interesting time shifts during the
build.  All file systems are local not NFS, so that rules out
client/server timestamp problems.  I'm blowing away my object tree and
will try to buildworld again and see what happens.
