I don't think so.  Just invoking /bin/sh from a shell exhibits the
purging of the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.  Consider the
following (on macOS Sierra):

===
% export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=a
% echo $DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH
a
% export MY_VAR=b
% echo $MY_VAR
b
% /bin/sh -c 'echo $DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH'

% /bin/sh -c 'echo $MY_VAR'
b
===
