 The `var/build_id` value, which is included in filenames, is a hash of all
 the inputs used to create a build.

 In theory this hash should be the same on different build machines.
 However it seems it is not always the case, at least for the android
 build, and we should find why.

 This command can be used to see the filename of Tor Browser alpha for
 ./rbm/rbm showconf tor-browser filename --target alpha --target
