I'm in favor of this.  In addiiton to avoiding work for people, it also
means that bulk build machines intending to create redistributable
packages won't spend cycles building things that are going to be ignored

Another thought (and I don't mean to demand that anyone implement it) is
that this problem arises because of the notion that bulk builds disable
the license check logic.  Normally, only Free or Open Source software is
built.  So we could, in addition the the undocumented variable to skip
all license checks, add another variable, perhaps _ACCETPABLE_FTP, that
skips the license check only if NO_SRC_ON_FTP and NO_BIN_ON_FTP are both
