dependencies: additional check for PERL_MM_OPT
When the user has Perl local::lib installed, its environment contains a PERL_MM_OPT variables which defines INSTALL_BASE="/some/location". Unfortunately, having this makes the build of libxml-parser-perl (and probably other Perl related packages) fail, because it complains that both PREFIX (passed in our .mk file) and INSTALL_BASE (passed from the PERL_MM_OPT environment variable) are defined. Since in Buildroot we want our PREFIX to be considered, we error out when the user has PERL_MM_OPT defined.
