buildsys improvements #4262
instead of comparing "timestamps" (package.mk newer than $STAMP and so on), this aims to detect changes by comparing md5 sums of the whole package dir (via md5deep)
this is good for people who need to do huge rebases often (or switching branches back and forth without actualy building).
Interesting, thanks. This could reduce the number of packages that are rm'd unnecessarily under various circumstances. I'll test this, but for the time being will still rely on timestamps when cleaning packages before a build (need to give more thought how best to use this as part of my process).
