1. What about src/contrib?
usually don't care, except if it is a set[ug]id binary or a daemon etc.
At least that's how I see it.
2. is something like
| if( setenv(....) != 1 )
| fprintf(stderr, "Malloc failed!");
enough or is there more to do?
that depends on the context. Maybe the env setting isn't ciritical, so
a warning might be sufficient. Maybe setting the variable is an
absolute must, and a failure demands aborting the execution (i could
imagine env(1) would be such a candidate)
