BTW, longstanding issue with build/genconfig.sh test for setenv() (on SPARC/Solaris 9, at least, but probably on others lacking setenv()  too - I've always just edited build/config.h by hand to work around it):

bash-2.05$ gcc -c -o build/testfile.o -g -O2 -Wall -Wno-unused -D_REENTRANT -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -DSunOS -I/export/mindwarp/home/xymon/xymon-4.3.28/include -DCLIENTONLY=1 build/test-setenv.c
build/test-setenv.c: In function `main':
build/test-setenv.c:5: warning: implicit declaration of function `setenv'
bash-2.05$ echo $?

Compiling the test just to .o file (-c option) won't check to see if setenv symbol is actually resolved.  Compiling without -Werror will also not test for the warning above (that setenv wasn't in the header files, presumably in stdlib.h).

Similar shortcomings may apply to some of the other tests. :-(  I wouldn't want to guess what the most portable AND correct changes to build/genconfig.h might be.  But at least I got annoyed enough this time to track down the problem. :-)
