Set GIT_COMMITTER_DATE and GIT_AUTHOR_DATE
This avoids most date dependencies: unless other measures are taken, the commits and tags are identical iff they are constructed identically. This makes the test suite more deterministic. In drs-push-rejects test, increment them explicitly, so as to make all of mktag's tags distinct objects. Otherwise it can generate identical tags (now, always; previously, only sometimes on fast computers), causing spurious variations in behaviour (eg, things not being rejected because they do not represent any change).
