IMO this is just stupid. config.h is not an output of the build, it's
an intermediate step which in this case is irrelevant. It shouldn't
have been included in the checksum in the first place -- or conversely
it shouldn't have been included in the debian package.
Further the whole point of "configure" is to produce results that might
vary based on the buid environment. Reproducibility should only apply
downstream of configuration, if it's to have any value at all.
