+2012-12-02  Paul Eggert  <eggert@cs.ucla.edu>
+
+	Assume POSIX 1003.1-1988 or later for execve.
+	* callproc.c (Fcall_process):
+	* process.c (create_process):
+	Don't save and restore environ; no longer needed.
+	* callproc.c (child_setup):
+	Use execve, not execvp, to preserve environ.

 	* fileio.c (Vauto_save_list_file_name): Doc fix.
