system command

Hello all,

how can I tell   the  system-command to use  the   complete
environment of my linux box?

Background: I wrote a script for Matlab to convert plots to
metagraph  using  metapost (yeah, looks good!).  The script
calls mpost first,

system('./ somefile');

and mpost tells:

| ./ processing This is MetaPost, Version 0.641 (Web2C 7.3.1)
| I can't find the mem file `mpost.mem'!

Same for using latex, eg. the environment is missing for
mpost and latex. Using

unix('./ somefile');

within Matlab works fine.

Any hints? Thanks in advance
