column command missing on SmartOS /Solaris #210

Solaris and thus SmartOS on Joyent do not have the column command available

nvm ls gives the error -bash: column: command not found

Not a huge deal since nvm still works but slightly annoying to see the error all the time

change line 127 of .nvm/
echo -e "$OUTPUT" | column to echo -e "$OUTPUT"
allows nvm to work correctly


Also I was getting an error about not being installed. provides this lib file. I downloaded the file curl -O and copied libstdc++ into /opt/local/lib.

After doing this nvm installed correctly
