There is the wgNoFollowLinks setting to add rel="nofollow" to all external
links, but no option to do the same for interwiki links. I have a patch to
implement this which will shortly be forthcoming.

patch to implement feature requested in bug
Untrusted sites should not be in the interwiki table, probably, hmm?
It makes no sense to do this.

new version of patch with option to apply nofollow only to nonlocal interwiki links
This patch gives two config options: one which, if enabled, applies nofollow to
all interwiki links; the other which, if enabled, applies nofollow only to
nonlocal interwiki links (ie, to interwiki prefixes with iw_local set to 0).
I concur with Brion and Rob. This isn't particularly useful for core: more option clutter for no good reason.
