ttcp is this way.  I believe Eric Norum set things up something like

  rtems_task Init
    convert COMMAND_LINE -> argc, argv style
    program_main( argc, argv );

See network-demos/ttcp/rtems_ttcp.c.  I suppose the code under the
code under the comment "Break line into arguments" should be a reused

<sigh>  This type of thing needs to happen for RTEMS.  Chris Johns has
progress in this arena with his My Right Boot.
