nbexec -E proposed patch

Some RCP applications need to be passed environment variables to work well
(for example, those encapsulating native components from industrial background), but there is no way to set these environment variables from command line, especially for "run" and "debug" targets of a suite (in run.args or run.args.extra properties).

Please add -Ekey=value or -E key=value syntax to nbexec in order to set environment variables to be able to run such applications while developing them inside the NetBeans IDE.
