clock problem

situation, one pc clock would not keep time after each reboot, replaced motherboard battery, clock now keeps correct time.

but now my problem is whenever i download something and try to compile it, all these verbose errors come up saying ./blah/file is 143232 seconds into the future?!?? do i have to reinstall my whole operating system again or what? like i said before the clock now keeps and displays the time fine.

You could just

find /<where the source sits> -exec touch -r <some file with sensible time & date> {} \;
