We may need to patch fontforge.  The version is derived from the current
date at build time:

    fontforge-20190317/"$(date -u 
    fontforge-20190317/configure:#define FONTFORGE_VERSIONDATE_RAW 

And that’s what’s used in fontforge-20190317/fontforge/start.c.

We don’t run “date” during the configuration; during builds


We may need to patch fontforge so that these values are properly defined.
