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
# VERSION="IBM JDK 1.4.2"
As you can see from the comment, maybe you should run java-config to set
up java correctly.
