There is an undocumented setenv/1 which you can use to define setenv/2:

setenv(N, V) :-
	concat_string([N,"=",V], S),

If I remember correctly, the reason it is not an official builtin was
that it was not supported on some platforms, but nowadays it seems to
work everywhere, so I guess we should add the setenv/2 builtin on the
next occasion.
