Good catch. Fixed.  Please try again with the same link.

With cnrun, the FTBFS problem exists in the previous version (1.1.14, which
has been in testing since long ago).  The current version of cnrun (2.0.1)
has no __DATE__ or __TIME__ macros, does not need to be fixed, and is
already in experimental, in the NEW queue awaiting admission to unstable.
