There is currently no way to do this from a framework point of view,
but one option would be to use an inplace build of pciids and include
it statically in libpciaccess.  See the various files we
have for an idea of how to do this.

A better option may be to just update pciids once per quarter just
before we branch, ensuring each branch gets the latest updates, as
you'll be rebuilding all packages for the branch anyway.
