Hello. I recently upgraded to org 8 from the builtin org (7.x) of Emacs
24.3 and lost the ability to customize the \hypersetup block via the custom
var org-export-latex-hyperref-options-format. Platform is OSX, Emacs
installed via homebrew and org-mode updated via package.el.

Org 7.x defines the var in org-latex.el. Because it's a builtin, the custom
var still displays in the 'org-latex-export group when configuring options.
However, the new export logic from ox-latex.el does not define this custom
var, nor does it respect the value if it is set. This is doubly confusing
because it appears the var is available, but it actually unused.

I found this thread from September which describes the same issue, but the
patch did not address adding the custom var back and seems to have died.

I've created a patch via git format-patch which adds the custom var to
ox-latex.el and makes use of it. Thanks for considering it.
