It should be set in one or more of the files in /etc/env.d.

The standard paths are set in /etc/env.d/00basic but the java ebuild should have added a separate file for java settings, usually /etc/env.d/20java. Mine contains # Autogenerated by java-config # Command: --set-system-vm=ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2 JDK_HOME=/opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2 JAVAC=/opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2/bin/javac PATH="/opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2/bin:/opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2/jre/bin" ROOTPATH="/opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2/bin:/opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2/jre/bin" LDPATH="/opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2/jre/bin/:/opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2/jre/bin/classic" # VERSION="IBM JDK 1.4.2" JAVA_HOME=/opt/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2 As you can see from the comment, maybe you should run java-config to set up java correctly. -- Neil Bothwick Quantum Physics: The dreams that stuff is made of
