[vlc-devel] Ho can I use variables inside --sout '<parameter-list>' commands?

I'm having a problem passing variables in bash scripts to commands like 

     vlc $1 -I dummy --sout '#std{access=mmsh,dst=:$PORT}' --ttl 12 --loop

How do I keep $PORT from being interpreted as a string? dst=$FILE would 
be another use.

I'm sorry to ask a bash question here, but VLC has a distinctive way of 
passing parameters and I was hoping there is a well-known solution.
