SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment variable set in rpmbuild

I just want to give heads up that today, my PR [1] allowing to set
SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment variable during build of RPM was merged
into redhat-rpm-config. This means that some packages might have a bit
more reproducible builds.

This was triggered by this ticket [2] and subsequent discussion on
Ruby-SIG ML [3]. Please keep in mind that while your packages might
benefit from this if it respects the environment variable, this is *not*
part of any broader reproducible builds effort.
