When building a release, I always use
env -i PATH=$PATH USER=$USER LOGNAME=$LOGNAME MAKECONF=/dev/null \
sh build.sh release
(and all the right quotes, and the other args for build.sh I omitted here)
This way, nothing in the local environment (as in envp, as well as mk.conf)
can possibly affect the outcome, and customisations I use when compiling
stuff for myself all get ignored.
No extra magic is needed.
