[erlang-patches] escript to accept emulator flags in scripts without shebang

The documentation for escript says that if the second or third line of
the script starts with %%!, the rest of the line will be used as
emulator arguments.  However, currently this is only the case if the
first line starts with #!.  I couldn't see any reason for that, so here
is a patch that removes this undocumented limitation.
