[Rd] configure-args for R CMD build

When I build a package containing a vignette, the package gets installed to build the vignette. However, it appears that R CMD build does not allow for --configure-args. In my case, I have a C library installed in a non-standard position, and I need to tell the package where it is. It works fine with R CMD INSTALL, but R CMD build complains

  Warning: unknown option
‘--configure-args=--with-graphviz=/Users/khansen/Source/usr’

and the subsequent installation fails with an error.

Suggestion: allow R CMD build to accept --configure-args (and probably also --configure-vars)

Best,
Kasper
