I'm sorry, but if you have a "development team" which shares object files, having all of them using the exact same tools should be a cinch, just have each one run the same version of your favorite distribution (modulo "recompile all worlds" each time GCC/coreutils/... version gets bumped). Not really needed most of the time, I re-make some projects I follow with updates, and that doesn't require to recompile everything even if gcc changes. Only rarely do I have to clean beforehand.
Even so, compile timestamps get embedded in object (and other) files, perhaps even host names and assorted other trivia. Just take a look at the lengths GCC's build goes to check that stage 2 and 3 builds are the same.
