I'm not sure if this is exactly what you want but try :
mknod RSH_INP p # make a pipe
xterm -title "Production" -e rsh prodserver1 -l produser `cat RSH_INP`&
echo "source $PRODENV_1;cd $BINDIR; sh -i" > RSH_INP;
rm RSH_INP # since it is not necessary anymore.
which should do exactly what you want.
Note however atht I had to change rlogin to rsh and that is will
probably not work if you need to give the password for produser.
