My SCO Unix system doesn't recognize files starting with #!

This is an ancient post with no relevance to modern systems.

Unix 3.2v4.0 through 3.2v4.2 include a parameter to determine whether the kernel supports the use of #! to denote the interpreter for a particular script, but it is not tuneable using the standard configure program. Instead, edit the file /etc/conf/pack.d/kernel/space.c and change the hashplingenable setting from 0 to 1. Rebuild and install the new kernel.
