This is how I did it in wip/firefox15: 

### Enable Official Branding
### Note that you cannot distribute builds with Official Branding
### without permission of the Mozilla Foundation.
### See
.if !empty(PKG_OPTIONS:Mofficial-mozilla-branding)
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=		--enable-official-branding
RESTRICTED=			"Cannot redistribute builds with Official Branding"

The restriction is that we can not *redistribute* officially-branded
binaries, but users may perfectly enable this flag for their own use.  Why
wouldn't we offer it as an option then, to make it easy for our users?  As
long as we/they don't redistribute the resulting binaries.
