AFAIK, Andy was using Dual Opteron's and I was using an FX-55. Compiler flags were identical. Hardware differed slightly, I was using HW RAID, I'm not sure if Andy was using RAID or not.
Be aware that two identical builds even on the same machine will differ slightly. Things like modified dates will always be different (unless this exact machine can have exactly the same state over both builds). Even just taking modified dates into account, you could get packages of different sizes.
