Sorry, no: Environment variables must be *completely* avoided!  There
are operating systems that don't have environment variables at all.

It's OK for me if only a part of the Infinality improvements are added
to upstream FreeType.

I'm not sure whether all of them are to be configured individually...
Anyway, people might apply patches on top of upstream FreeType to have
environment variable support, but this won't become part of the
official FreeType distribution.
