There's no big difference between using the actual build time (when %build 
ran) or the install time (when %install ran). Other than that the install 
time on the files are most likely somewhat closer together.

So I really do not see why someone wants to preserve the build time. None 
of the advantages you state are unique for using -p, they are true for not 
using -p.

Or am I missing something obvious here ?
