Unattended installation of universal forwarder

I'm trying to install splunkforwarder-5.0.1-143156-linux-2.6-amd64.deb in an automated, unattended way using fabric. The issue is that when starting splunk universal forwarder for the first time using:

/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunk start

You need to accept the terms and conditions, which is difficult to automate. Is there a way to avoid that message from showing? What would be the ideal solution is:

/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunk start --accept-terms-and-conditions

Which would simply start the daemon without asking any questions.

PS: This is not a fabric issue but a splunk one.
