Subject: How to pick up value of environment variable in /configure/RELEASE?

For example, if I currently have:
EPICS_BASE=/my_epics_location/epics/R3.14.12.7/base

but I want to be able to change the location of /my_epics_location on the fly  (perhaps because I want to use a different version of EPIS) by setting an environment variable $MY_EPICS_LOCATION

then how would I pick up the environment variable value in configure/RELEASE?

I feel like I should know this, but I guess I haven't ever had reason to do it before.
