I know Debian is making great efforts to obtain reproducible builds [1],
and in fact if you look at the first message of the bug report I
previously linked [2], they mention that they have been using some
custom patches to get Ghostscript to produce reproducible output
(on Debian).
In fact, we can find some information about Debian's Ghostscript patch
here [3], though unfortunately the link to the patch is dead.

(There is also more information about reproducible builds here [4].)
