              Exits with 0 if the current vendor distribution is a
              derivative of vendor, otherwise exits with 1.  It uses the

       DPKG_COLORS
              Sets the color mode (since dpkg 1.18.5).  The currently
              accepted values are: auto (default), always and never.

       DPKG_NLS
              If set, it will be used to decide whether to activate Native
              Language Support, also known as internationalization (or i18n)
              support (since dpkg 1.19.0).  The accepted values are: 0 and 1
              (default).
