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/nvm.sh
echo -e "$OUTPUT" | column to echo -e "$OUTPUT"
allows nvm to work correctly

Also I was getting an error about libstdc++.so.6 not being installed.

http://docs.mongodb.org/ecosystem/tutorial/joyent-cloud/ provides this lib file. I downloaded the file curl -O http://downloads.mongodb.org.s3.amazonaws.com/sunos5/mongo-extra-64.tgz and copied libstdc++ into /opt/local/lib.

After doing this nvm installed correctly

+1 for column issue, solution from first comment fix this.
