Description:
------------
It seems that using php from command line (not calling it via web and then passing via apache and htaccess) the ini_set directive with sendmail_path doesn't work: ini_set is ignored

Reproduce code:
---------------
echo "<? ini_set('sendmail_path', '/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i -f autoreply@mydomain.it'); mail ('test@mydomain.com','test','test'); ?>" | php 

Expected result:
----------------
the email received should have the return_path set to autoreply@mydomain.it

Actual result:
--------------
the email received has the default return_path (username@severname).

Where can I set this value (sendmail_path) when I execute a script directly from the command line?

sendmail_path cant be changed with ini_set().
Use php -dsendmail_path="...."

sendmail_path	- PHP_INI_SYSTEM
Where "PHP_INI_SYSTEM" means "Entry can be set in php.ini or httpd.conf".
