The shell builtin `set` produces different output for different shells:

bash$ set | grep '^TERM='
TERM=xterm
dash$ set | grep '^TERM='
TERM='xterm'

This may break reproducible builds depending on what shell is used.

Let's replace `set` with `env`, which is a real command and always
produces identical output.

How about printenv (without grep)?

The variables are not known in advance. This needs to match all variables
starting with "enable_" and "with_".

Portability.  

"env |grep" is POSIX standardized so should work everywhere.

printenv is a BSD invention, which not all unix variants are required
to have.

(Besides, printenv on its own cannot do "give me all environment variables
that start with 'with_'", which is exactly what we want here... so you'd
end up with "printenv | grep", which is less portable and more characters)
