If I get right what you're asking...

Root's shell is csh by default.  Csh does not have an exact equivalent to
the sh export command.  Instead you must use

    setenv variable value

Note the lack of the = sign.

This basically combines the functions of sh's set and export.  (Maybe there
are some subtle differences if you subsequently set the non-exported
variable by the same name?  But you probably don't need to worry about
