You can easily override a Makefile variable with an environment variable
to suit your needs.

That's a bit more complex. There are several ways to do things, but
your change would require me to do a lot of changes. What I use now in
the daily build is:
XML_DIR=`mktemp -d /tmp/blfsbookxml.XXXXXX`
svn --quiet export "$SVN" BLFS
# Build the bootscripts
VERSION=`grep "bootscripts-version " general.ent|cut -d\" -f2`
DEST=`grep "downloads-root " general.ent|cut -d\" -f2|cut -b 8-`
mv bootscripts $BOOTSCRIPTS
tar -cjhf $BOOTSCRIPTS.tar.bz2 $BOOTSCRIPTS
# copy $BOOTSCRIPTS.tar.bz2 to the desired location
Why don't you just use that or a variation.
