Bernhard M_ Wiedemann created an issue: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/issues/980
## Description of problem:
Copyright year is updated on build (in configure)
## Version of gnutls used:
## Distributor of gnutls (e.g., Ubuntu, Fedora, RHEL)
## How reproducible:
Steps to Reproduce:
* build gnutls from scratch in current year and a later year (can use `qemu -rtc base=`)
* compare binaries
## Actual results:
building today's version in 2025 produces
`Copyright (C) 2000-2025 Free Software Foundation, and others`
and differs from a binary built today.
## Expected results:
Software builds should be reproducible. See https://reproducible-builds.org/ for why this matters.
https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/merge_requests/928#note_145264928 seems to be the preferred approach.
