Re: Core rebuild in mock - BuildRequires - rpmdiffs normal ?

I did read that one of the points of rpm packaging was to have repeatable package builds. While this doesn't seem to fit this scenario, perhaps it is normal when re-compiling an i386 package on an AMD Athlon with possibly updated libraries / compilers etc (from mock devel as well) that the built binaries would change (eg, even if it was just text fields like:
# abcdtool
Built on blah machine on Fri blah) ?

elfutils has a tool to compare two binaries and see if they're different
for real; eg ignoring usual "elf noise" ;)
OK,
# eu-elfcmp ncopy mock/ncopy
eu-elfcmp: ncopy mock/ncopy differ: symbol table [4]

Can someone offer an interpretation of this ?
