On Apple OSX there is a problem with my build scripts: the date of compiled files being set into future (both of those touched by make and produced by my own build system).

That is immensely frustrating and a source of bugs: I believe my program compiles fine, while in fact the compiler have not even run.

The suspected perpetrator is time sync client (NTP or whatever OSX uses), which supposedly moves drifting time backwards a minute. How does one check the last time the time-server client ran to confirm that it is indeed time sync fault?
