Additionally, for each package variables can be provided
by prefixing the following suffices with the canonicalized package
name (non alphanumeric and underscore characters are replaced by
underscore and only lower case letters are used), e.g. NetCDF-C
becomes the `netcdf_c` prefix. Optionally, the prefix can be
extended with the canonicalized version to provide for fixes known to
be needed for a specific package version only.
+ *prefix*_configure
Contains extra arguments to pass to the configure step of the
package denoted by *prefix*
+ *prefix*_configure_env
This variable undergoes variable expansion as a prefix of the
configure command and can for example be used to run configure with
a different shell or via `salloc`.
+ *prefix*_check_env
These variables serve the same purpose as *prefix*_configure_env but
for the stage running the test suite.
