This is unexpected. Unfortunately I haven't looked at reproducibility
in a while, and my work was all on x86. This could be a regression or
a longstanding issue with arm64.

If you install the diffoscope package (py37-diffoscope) and run it on
the two directories / files it should give a more convenient view of
the differences. (Or, if you can make a tarball of the differing files
I can take a look.)
