They aren't random -- there's a well-defined set that the test suite

        TESTDIR - the directory to run the tests in

        EXPR    - the expr program to use
        ID      - the id program to use
        TR      - the tr program to use

All of them have default values, but they are not appropriate for some
people.  (Note that these affect only the test suite itself, not CVS, so
there's no danger of CVS working for the tester but not for the users
based on their settings.)  These variables exist because people (plural)
have needed them -- you're the very first person to report a problem
running the tests because of a large environment.

Maybe it would be safer to clear the environment at the beginning of

This is what I have used in the past to clear out unwanted stuff inside of a script.

        #! /bin/sh
        for VAR in `set | /usr/bin/sed -e 's/=.*//'`; do
            case $VAR in
                PATH )          ;;
                IFS )           ;;
                SHELL )         ;;

                PS2 )           ;;
                MAILCHECK )     ;;
                OPTIND )        ;;
                * )             unset $VAR; export $VAR;;
        unset VAR
        export PATH

Modify it as you see fit and put it at the beginning of
