Dear diary...

So I wasted a couple trying to only find out that I can't use getenv in _init. Wouldn't be a hudge problem, if everything else like malloc and friends wouldn't work in _init in a LD_PRELOADed library but they do. So that's one Sunday evening I'm not getting back. Howerver when I woke up this morning, I looked @ zlibc and artsdsp source to find out how they do things. I figured they'd have the same problem (and a sollution). Wow, zlibc is old and I really would hate using the environ variable. However artsdsp way of doing things works here, so I stole the idea, and now it's smooth sailing again.
