Backdating the compile output with touch may have a negative impact on doing a make (not a full rebuild) while trying to fix a bug in the package. --clamp-mtime restricts the time stamp manipulation to the contents of the .deb / .udeb / .tar.xz files .
Sorry, I'm still not getting it. It seems to me that any method that would have a negative impact on 'make' when using 'touch', would have a similar negative impact in the generated tarball when using --clamp-mtime. Can you give a more complete example of the problem?
