I truly believe it would be best to put the commands you want to run
directly into your ~/.fvwm/.fvwm2rc file.  Tracking stuff down (when
it inevitably needs to change) across multiple files is no fun.

That said,

       When  bash  is  started  non-interactively,  to run a shell script, for
       example, it looks for the variable BASH_ENV in the environment, expands
       its  value if it appears there, and uses the expanded value as the name
       of a file to read and execute.


       ENV    Similar to BASH_ENV; used when the shell  is  invoked  in  POSIX
