To increase the reproducibility of builds
we shouldn't use __DATE__. However, for
the development builds there is some demand
for leaving this in.

So as suggested by Gert Doering go for a
compromise where we only use __DATE__ if
we also include the git information. This
will remove this information from release
builds, but not from builds done directly
from the git checkout.

I think this is a workable compromise - thanks.

Building from git gives me

  OpenVPN 2.6_git [git:master/a9b3585d606e5b57] x86_64-pc-linux-gnu [SSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [LZ4] [EPOLL] [MH/PKTINFO] [AEAD] [DCO] built on Aug  6 2022

doing a "make dist" and building from the resulting tarball gives

  OpenVPN 2.6_git x86_64-pc-linux-gnu [SSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [LZ4] [EPOLL] [MH/PKTINFO] [AEAD]

Your patch has been applied to the master branch.
