How do you change the system time for your image at build time?

It appears that whenever we build an image, the builder's system time when the image was built is "baked in" the image somewhere.  If we attempt to change the system time (while running the image) to some time before this, the system acts strangely.  For instance, if our image was built at 3:00PM on Nov 2, and we attempt to change the date while running the image to Oct 20, we see this issue.  Is there a way to change the system time used by the image when the image is built?  We're using the 3.10.17 kernel with yocto 1.6.1.
