        some binaries built on netbsd-5 doesn't work correctly on current
        due to the putenv incompatibility.

        eg. the following is a snippet from erlang.  HAVE_COPYING_PUTENV is
        detected by a configure script and is set for netbsd-5.
        it's unsafe for current because putenv makes 'str' a part of

static void
set_env(char *key, char *value)
#ifdef __WIN32__
    if (!SetEnvironmentVariable((LPCTSTR) key, (LPCTSTR) value))
        error("SetEnvironmentVariable(\"%s\", \"%s\") failed!", key, value);
    size_t size = strlen(key) + 1 + strlen(value) + 1;
    char *str = emalloc(size);
    sprintf(str, "%s=%s", key, value);
    if (putenv(str) != 0)
        error("putenv(\"%s\") failed!", str);

        version putenv?
