popt env. var patch
Using the environment to locate config files, particularly for popt, is
dangerous, as popt
config can too easily be used to remap executables and command line options onto
trojan horses for example.
The underlying idea(s)/need(s) are sound, so I'm gonna mark DEFERRED, I just
that the envirornment is necessarily the best implementation.
