Even though I personally dislike this default as well, I see a point
in it.  Even though it may seem inappropriate for 100%-LDBL_MIN of the
users, it will flag to others that they got files rebuilt locally that
probably shouldn't have been rebuilt (i.e., they should be up-to-date
in CVS, and if they seem to be out-of-date, it's just because the
local timestamps don't always follow check-in time stamps).
