There is at least one source of nondeterminism in the compiler:
the generation of temporary file names.  And it can be influenced
by the contents of the /tmp directory, especially when a previous
compiler run has crashed and left its temporary files there...
There may be other sources of nondeterminism, but I can't think
of any off the top of my head.

No, the GC is completely deterministic (thank God).
