      Description

      When running eg ./sbin/start-dfs.sh from a tarball the scripts complain JAVA_HOME is not set and could not be found even if the env var is set.

      hadoop-0.24.0-SNAPSHOT $ echo $JAVA_HOME
      /home/eli/toolchain/jdk1.6.0_24-x64
      hadoop-0.24.0-SNAPSHOT $ ./sbin/start-dfs.sh 
      log4j:ERROR Could not find value for key log4j.appender.NullAppender
      log4j:ERROR Could not instantiate appender named "NullAppender".
      Starting namenodes on [localhost]
      localhost: Error: JAVA_HOME is not set and could not be found.
      

      I have to explicitly set this via hadoop-env.
