Building from source root using command pypy_src$ rpython/bin/rpython -Ojit pypy/goal/targetpypystandalone.py produces structure with obsolete pypy-c and libpypy-c.so in /tmp/usession-release-4.0.1-XXXX/build/pypy-nightly/bin/
Probably pypy compiler places there files integrated in the src distribution. To get fresh versions I had to use pypy-c and libpypy-c.so from sources root.
UPDATE: Probably I was completely wrong. pypy/tool/release/package.py has an option for (not) stripping resulting binary file: “–nostrip”. By default it is enabled. Looks like it removed something unused from binaries. This operation updates timestamp of the pypy-c and libpypy-c.so. So probably that was the cause of my misunderstanding.
