These would be set in the webserver configuration and processed within cgiutil.c. Since a runtime option isn't possible this would be better than a compile-time one... Just thinking out loud.

I agree this needs to be fixed for OGC/WMS, but since in the OGC/WMS 
case we never want cookies to be appended to params, the cookies should 
automatically be ignored in that case. For this reason I'm not too keen 
on requiring this kind of environment variables unless there is 
absolutely no other way to go.
