[PATCH v4 05/10] run-command: prepare child environment before forking




In order to avoid allocation between 'fork()' and 'exec()' prepare the
environment to be used in the child process prior to forking.

Switch to using 'execve()' so that the construct child environment can
used in the exec'd process.
