#257: Commandline flag to enable BRO_FAKE_DNS

Comment (by vern):

 I wonder whether instead of adding command-line flags, we should move
 towards use of var=value, as is already supported, by exposing this
 functionality as a script variable.  One then uses ''''''bro
 use_fake_dns=T'''''' rather than ''''''bro -N''''''.

 One downside is that ''''''bro --help'''''' won't display this.  However,
 we could consider adding a framework where variables meant to be redefined
 on the command-line have text associated with them that ''''''bro
 --help'''''' displays.
