Rsync doesn't do any rounding, so I don't know where the inconsistency
would be.  We just set the desination time based on the mtime value, and
the tls program outputs an interpretation of the mtime value.

That was only true when building in a separate dir and only if the
proto.h file was older than the newest .c file, but didn't need to be
updated.  I've fixed this in the latest source.
