If we can't find a better date to use, then use today's date.

dnl We'd really rather this case didn't happenm but it might
dnl do (in particular, people using lndir trees may find that
dnl the build system can't find any other date). If it does
dnl happen, then we use the current date.
dnl This way we get some idea about how recent a build is.
dnl It also means that packages built for 2 different builds
dnl will probably use different version numbers, so things are
dnl less likely to go wrong.
