[op-sepp] Inheriting the current environment into the SEPP compile shell

seppadm execs a shell (compile shell) w/o inheriting any environment 
variables.  This creates problems on some buildhosts which require a 
specific environment ($MODULESPATH, $MODULESHOME) which should be 
inherited from the standard login environment.  These variables are not 
always the same on all buildhosts.

Where is the "cleanup" of the environment variables done and how can we 
disable it?  SaneShell() doesn't seem to remove any existing variables, 
just set some.  On the other hand, custom variables defined in "compile 
env" are ignored.
