+static int setenv(const char *name, const char *value, int overwrite)
+  size_t buflen= strlen(name) + strlen(value) + 2;
+  char *envvar= (char *)malloc(buflen);
+  if(!envvar)
+    return ENOMEM;
+  strcpy(envvar, name);
+  strcat(envvar, "=");
+  strcat(envvar, value);
+  putenv(envvar);
+  return 0;

I expected better from you :)

A much better version is:

strcat(strcat(strmov(envvar, name), "="), value);

The other question I have is will this not cause a memory leek?
If we allocate the same string many times in here it will definitely
be a memory leak as putenv() will never free the old value.
