Perhaps, though I don't see any benefit to this approach rather than
always setting the variable. Can you elaborate?
I'm building a version of boost with OMPI_MCA_disable_memory_allocator=1
set in debian/rules. There's at least one more FTBFS bug that would
need to do this, which is a very nonobvious workaround to a build
failure. Wouldn't it be better to have fakeroot set the variable
and fix the problem in one place?
