cmd/go: do not append to the global cfg.OrigEnv slice

Appending to a global slice is only safe if its length is already
equal to its capacity. That property is not guaranteed for slices in
general, and empirically does not hold for this one.

This is a minimal fix to make it easier to backport.
A more robust cleanup of the base.EnvForDir function will be sent in a
subsequent CL.

Fixes #38077
Updates #37940
