setenv.c comes from glibc (file glibc/stdlib/setenv.c). You could guess it

​I did wonder about that, but I thought maybe glibc used some code from gnulib.​

In gnulib, we generally try to avoid gratuitous differences to glibc sources,
in order to ease the burden of the occasional re-sync. Therefore I would not
like to change this comment here.

​Maybe it would be worth adding a banner to say "imported from glibc, do not touch"?
