Ok.  I've reverted the changes to those three files, for now :(

If we can't clean up such little nit-picky details because of
such a constraint, then maybe it's time to remove the constraint.

Does anyone object to gnulib getting setenv.c and unsetenv.c from
coreutils instead?  I had it the `right' way six months ago, and
reluctantly changed to the `#ifdef HAVE_CONFIG_H' to stay in sync
with gnulib.  That's backwards.  gnulib should be setting the
standard, not toeing some arbitrary line.
