Code: test.c
#include <stdio.h>
   char *cmd = "/usr/bin/ping -c %d %s";
   char *command=NULL;
   int ret;
   ret = asprintf (&command, cmd, 1, "");
   printf ("%d %s\n", ret, command);

[root at hydra xmlobj]# ./test
27 /usr/bin/ping -c 1
[root at hydra xmlobj]# su nobody
[nobody at hydra xmlobj]$ ./test

I don't know quite how current this is, the root_fs is dated  (via ftp)
