In the case of bash, you use the unset built-in like so:


but if this is the only package that needs the variable unset, and only
for compilation, you might want to save the value in a temp variable and
then re-set the original variable.  This will do the job:

$ export temp=$EMACS_UNIBYTE ; unset EMACS_UNIBYTE 

then do whatever compilation needs to be done and then run:

$ export EMACS_UNIBYTE=$temp

take care,
