In order to enable/disable it you  just have to go into the 
src/config/Options.lb and change the BUILDID_OPTION to be blank for 
older ld versions / non-x86 builds and leave it as "-Wl,--build-id=none" 
for the newer ld versions. 

This IMO is the same as using an enviroment variable.   With the added 
benefit of  it being  contained within the build process.   I do not 
know of any other build option(s) that currently use enviroment 
variables.  I believe all of them are currently handled through the 
Options.lb file and see no reason to break from this.
