I'm not sure that a build timestamp is really particularly useful for a project that has branches, but if it's that important to you, yeah, apply it.

The build timestamp is used in the dbus-1.dll version info file and helps to distinguish dbus binary versions where patches are not in upstream as done for example by the KDE on windows project 

https://projects.kde.org/projects/kdesupport/emerge/repository/revisions/master/entry/portage/win32libs-sources/dbus-src/dbus-src-1.4.10-20110302.py

patch applied to dbus-1.4 - merge to master will follow
