[Bug binutils/20391] New: ar on native Windows stores localtime, not UTC times tamps in archives

Bug ID: 20391
Summary: ar on native Windows stores localtime, not UTC times
tamps in archives
Assignee: unassigned at sourceware dot org
Reporter: konrad.schwarz at siemens dot com
Target Milestone: ---
I am using a cross-compiler tool chain compiled for native Windows in a Cygwin
build environment, i.e. Cygwin make.
The tool chain is from Canonical Launchpad, version:
GNU Tools for ARM Embedded Processors 5.0
- Q4 2015
* binutils : 2.26 prerelease with mainline backports
My makefile uses lib: lib(member) rules, i.e., make relies on
the time stamps of member files in archives. Cygwin make reports
clock skew for the member file -- typically slightly less than an hour,
and does not update the archive.
I am one hour west of UTC.
Here is the output of Cygwin ar vs. the cross-compiler's ar:
$ ar tv libarm_mp_startup.a
rw-rw-rw- 0/0 57960 Jun 23 00:21 2016 ticker.o
rw-rw-rw- 0/0 18584 Jul 20 14:38 2016 startup.o
$ arm-none-eabi-ar tv libarm_mp_startup.a
rw-rw-rw- 0/0 57960 Jun 22 23:21 2016 ticker.o
rw-rw-rw- 0/0 18584 Jul 20 13:38 2016 startup.o

It seems clear that the natively compiled ar is at fault here: it is
storing localtime and not UTC as the archive member's time stamps.
