autofs-5.1.0 - add config option to force use of program map stdvars

From: Ian Kent <ikent@redhat.com>

Enabling the extended environment (including $HOME, for example) for
program maps opens automount(8) to a privilege escalation.

Rather than just removing the entended environment a configuration
option is added to disable it by default so that those who wish to
use it can do so if they wish.
