[Distutils] buildout: setting envirionment variables for zc.recipe.egg:custom?

building lxml requires additional configuration so it finds xslt-config 
correctly. One possibility is to set the PATH environment variable. The 
other is to call setup.py --xslt-config=...

Using setup.py --xslt-config doesn't fit at all into buildout i think.

Setting environment variables before installing an egg on the other 
hand might be useful. Would it make sense to put this into 
zc.recipe.egg or would it be better to create some unrelated recipe 
which only sets envirionment variables?
