Produce identical packages for checksum comparison?

I have a somewhat flaky system.  I would like to compile ports to 
packages multiple times and do a file comparison.  Since packages are 
tar files they wouldn't match for sure just because of the different 
time attributes.  There may be other differences.  Anyone know how to 
generate packages with consistent checksums?
