Well, there is --configure-args and --configure-vars

Such packages are very rare (and has better remain so or the automated systems will grind to their knees). I have, e.g.

RNetCDF-OPTS =
--install-args='--configure-args=--with-netcdf-include=/usr/include/udunits2' Rserve-OPTS = --install-args='--configure-args=--without-server' udunits2-OPTS =
--install-args='--configure-args=--with-udunits2-include=/usr/include/udunits2'

I don't believe any of these 3 should be needed: they indicate a lack of responsiveness/dogmatism from the package maintainers. (I have some sympathy with resistance to non-standard layout, but it should be able to be specified by environment variables, as discussed in 'Writing R Extensions'.)
