"The date string, if supplied, is in either mm/dd/yy or mm/dd/yyyy format."

To me it sounds like an optional thing. An empty string is as
informative as any other random date. 

But before the bikeshedding starts I think its best to turn the
assignment in the Makefiles from "VAR = VAL" into "VAR ?= VAL". This
preserves existing practice and gives us the opportunity to pass
01/01/1970 as fixed VAL.
