To achieve binary-reproducible builds across different build hosts, build paths,
and users, we need to set the WHOWHERE value with something fixed. In this patch
I set it to the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH if set (see
https://reproducible-builds.org/specs/source-date-epoch/). If you're not trying
to do a reproducible build, it won't be set, so the existing WHOWHERE string
will apply.

Debian have set this string to their own Debian-specific value:


    WHOWHERE="$(dpkg-vendor --query vendor) package version
$(dpkg-parsechangelog -SVersion)"
