multi ~ # echo $JAVA_HOME

I don't know why JAVA_HOME is not recognized by the ebuild, but it IS set.

Are any further infos necessary?

The way Java is handled has been drastically changed. Please make sure you have followed all the steps at:
Comment 2 Josh Nichols (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-07-13 07:30:36 UTC
Need to know if you've followed the upgrade guide.
Comment 3 Christian H. Kuhn 2006-07-14 16:11:51 UTC
You put me to the update page which i did not find myself. After following the instructions, ant-core compiled.

For me, the problem remains how i could have avoided that unnecessary bug report.  The ebuilds i re-emerged before reading the update instructions did not have a pointer to the update, so it would be helpful to include such an "error" message.

On the other side, i think that it is not possible to add to every single ebuild that has java in its dependencies a pointer to the update page ...
