Bug Description

When building the bzr-2.7.0 package on openSUSE
I found that it embeds the current date in the man-page

The attached patch allows to override the current date

See https://reproducible-builds.org/ for why this is good
and https://reproducible-builds.org/specs/source-date-epoch/
for the definition of this variable.
