Yes. When I was working on packaging the CDT, they would produce builds
with HEAD set in the map file so I couldn't reproduce those builds. I
haven't been involved with the CDT for a little while so they may have
fixed that problem by now. I'm not sure about other projects because we
are not packaging everything at right now.

Projects that are not hosted on tend to cut releases by
manually exporting a deployable feature. If they forget to tag the cvs
repo for that release, it's difficult to reproduce the build. If we
could build from the source bundle, we would be in a better position to
reproduce the binary bundles, hence my request earlier in this thread.

I don't know off hand, but I'll figure it out when I have some free time
and post the results. 

Thanks, Ben
