[Mageia-dev] new environment variable for rpmbuild?

Would it be possible to add a new environment variable for rpmbuild to
use when building rpms?

new variable:   PERL_AUTOINSTALL=--skipdeps

This would prevent Perl modules using autoinstall to prompt for
downloading missing prereqs / optional deps:
- If missing prereqs, the build would fail cleanly.
- If missing optional dep, the build would proceed instead of failing.

This should be best done before launching mass rebuild, as I found
several such failures that could be avoided altogether if this nasty
module wasn't used.

==> who can do that? what should be patched?
