In that case, "ostree export" should probably also zero out the mtimes,
which will make things simpler and cleaner going forward.

It looks to me like libical has a table of strings and numerical values
which it stores internally. Maybe that's being generated dynamically at
build time by a programming language that has randomly-ordered
dictionaries? in that case, you'd want to change the table generation
by sorting the keys of the dictionary before emitting the table.
