looks like we need to test for setenv vs putenv at configure time.

No need to test.  Putenv is the preferred option, according to:

We're already using putenv several other places in the code, and just this one instance of setenv. I've changed it to putenv in CVS. There are a couple of other issues I want to resolve before the next release.

why does the environment variable "SHELL" have to be set for in this case?

No idea, so I don't want to change it.
