Wrench Environment variables for /etc. /usr/share?

Like there's LD_LIBRARY_PATH for libraries & PATH for executables, is there a variable for /etc and /usr/share ?

What I'm trying to do:
I have an extracted rpm package kept in a remote machine. I have created a wrapper that updates LD_LIBRARY_PATH, PATH with its libs & runtimes & runs the application.
Though the app runs fine, I do not know how to add the etc & usr/share folders to the environment.

You question is unclear. Why do you think you need environmental variables for /etc and /usr/share?
