[rb-general] Not detecting timestamp in gzip headers of the aspell-* packages

I'm working on a bunch of aspell dictionaries I maintain, and for one of
them I fixed an reproducible builds issue - https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-

While fixing it, I wondered why this tests aren't failing for the other
aspell-* dictionaries, as they all lack the needed flags for gzip.

See https://tests.reproducible-builds.org/debian/issues/

Notice that lintian does recoginze the issue and my packages are listed at

So I think you should double check this test, as it creates false negative
results. An example would be aspell-ro which lintian compalains about, but
is fine at https://tests.reproducible-builds.org/debian/rb-pkg/
