It seems, cobc from gnucobol-3.0-rc1
includes the current time into CBL_OC_DUMP.so
See https://reproducible-builds.org/ for why this matters.

to reproduce on openSUSE:
osc checkout openSUSE:Factory/gnu-cobol && cd $_
osc build
osc chroot

# and in there:
cd ~/rpmbuild/BUILD/gnucobol-3.0-rc1/extras
export COB_CONFIG_DIR=../config
export COB_CFLAGS="-I.. -L../libcob/.libs/"
../cobc/cobc -o CBL_OC_DUMP.so CBL_OC_DUMP.cob && md5sum CBL_OC_DUMP.so

diff looks thusly:
/usr/lib64/gnucobol/CBL_OC_DUMP.so differs in ELF section .rodata

cobc should either drop the date or support
