Ben is correct.  This was a deliberate decision some years ago,
because, like Ben says, having a date stamp in the pot file
causes everyone to complain that the build's md5sum changes on
every build.

This problem however has been fixed in gettext 0.20 so if we were
to insist that PSPP is build against 0.20 or later then presumably
we could go back to including the date stamp.

     Hmm. The commit that prevented generating the
     POT-Creation-Date did so because it broke reproducible builds.
     This commit came from John. John, would you like to comment
