Comment (by gk):

 Alright, I started a build on two different machines, both on commit
 069c880961e93fe2f5052ae6d428b2f9efdd1d4e (boklm/bug_29981_v5). One machine
 is building with containers and one without. While this setup builds
 reproducibly on each machine the *.apks on one machine differ from those
 on the second one.

 The differing parts are essentially all the Firefox .so files in assets/
 or lib/. Both machines built from the same `tor-browser` commit

 I attached two .so files showing the issue.

 FWIW: I built on the bare stretch machine without installing bison, yasm,
 and openjdk-8-jdk. (However, openjdk-8-jre is installed it seems)
