Fix memory leak from Trac #12664

This fixes the leak with setProgArgv. The problem was
that setProgArgv would not free the objects pointed
to by prog_argc, prog_argv when the globals were
changed resulting in a leak.

The only strictly necessary change is in rts/RtsFlags.c, but
the code in System.Environment was a bit confusing and not
exception safe, so I refactored it.
