Hi Simon,

Sorry, I forgot to send the dsfmt patch.  Also, julia's
SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH patch was named differently. I've fixed this in theattached 
patches.  You need to apply Add-dsfmt.patch, Update-to-1.3.1
and then julia-use-SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH.

About reproducibility: if I'm not wrong, contains Base library
precompiled ([1]).  Precompilation is still non deterministic (here's
[2] an issue on github). Something I did to check precompilation:

Since I'm tired of this, I've started investigating better.

Loaded a guix container
#+begin_src bash
mkdir -p /tmp/jlprecompiled/
./pre-inst-env guix environment -u nixbld --no-cwd --container --network 
--expose=$(realpath determinism) --share=/tmp/jlprecompiled/ --ad-hoc julia 
coreutils nss-certs curl tar gzip libfaketime

from this container, run some time this:

#+begin_src bash
export SSL_CERT_DIR="$GUIX_ENVIRONMENT/etc/ssl/certs"
export SSL_CERT_FILE="$SSL_CERT_DIR/ca-certificates.crt"

SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH=1 julia --startup-file=no -q -e 'using Pkg; Pkg.instantiate()'
SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH=1 faketime '2008-12-24 08:15:42' julia --startup-file=no -q 
-e 'using Random; using Pkg; Pkg.add("Compat"); Random.seed!(0); using Compat'

cp -r ~/.julia/compiled/v1.3/Compat/ /tmp/jlprecompiled/$RANDOM
sha256sum ~/.julia/compiled/v1.3/Compat/*
# 6c10d65f6cd9cdd5b98e4d5e2b82b7bd00508f0daccef0967dec92cb6468052e  
ls -lah ~/.julia/compiled/v1.3/Compat/*
# -rw------- 1 nixbld users 102K Jan 21 07:39 

I could not get the same results twice (also, size differs).  I'll work
on this on some spare time (for example, there are other places where
SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH can be used, but this [3] is a problem I need to
solve first).

Maybe 1.3.1 (when reviewed) can be merged, since we have
the same problem with julia 1.1, but we can wait for the
source-date-epoch and julia-xyz patches until we solve this.

What do you think?

Thanks, Nicolò
