Starting erl using sh -c

	I'm trying to work around a QNX problem with erlc.

	erlc starts the emulator using the execvp() call which is broken 
	in QNX unless the command is prefixed with sh -c

>From the UNIX prompt "sh -c erl -noinput -s erl_compile compile ...etc" just
starts a straight emulator - the erl shell script seems to lose everything
after the erl.

My UNIX shell knowledge runs out at this point. Anyone any ideas?
