It would go in git-compat-util.h. However, it really is not needed; you
can simply pass "1" to setenv, as every other callsite in git does.

More importantly, though, is it actually portable? I thought it was
added in C99, and we try to stick to C89 to support older compilers and
systems. My copy of C99 is vague (it says only that the "bool" macro was
added via stdbool.h in C99, but nothing about the "true" and "false"
macros), and I don't have a copy of C89 handy.  Wikipedia does claim the
header wasn't standardized at all until C99:
