We do the opposite.
We mandate how the environment has to look for our developers.

We got sick of "but it worked on my machine"
"Oh, I assumed that wizbang.jar would be available on the production machine"
etc. etc.

IMHO, In order to create a controlled, repeatable build/test process, you need
 to enforce a strict adherence to a defined evironment.
My build files are configurable with property files and more, but they are
 intended to be configured on a per *project* basis, and not by each
 individual developer.
