I pushed a fix for this issue to the 'wip-cu-binaries' branch, commit
eefabc1db04c91d6954306e319820cd95190c25d.  With this fix, my
'static-binaries' tarball now matches yours.

What remains is to make 'guile-static-stripped' deterministic.  For now,
I suspect it might be sufficient to build it with #:parallel-build #f,
although of course it would be good to eventually fix the parallel build
to be deterministic.

It would also be good to enable building the bootstrap binaries from a
commit that's somewhere along the linear history of the 'master' branch.

To be continued...
