Quirk releng.disable_prerequisites_check

A releng-tool project may require various dependencies. For example, if a package define a Git-based site for sources, the git client will be required to clone these sources into a build directory. To help inform users of issues in the early stage of a build, releng-tool will perform a prerequisites check for certain dependencies. If a prerequisite cannot be found, the build process stops immediately.

In select scenarios, the prerequisite check may wish to be skipped. For example, if the running environment is not expected to perform a specific action in a project that requires an application. To avoid triggering a run error at start, users may set the releng.disable_prerequisites_check quirk to skip any prerequisite check:

releng-tool --quirk releng.disable_prerequisites_check
