I don't think it is so weird. JAVA_HOME setting is ignored by RI and I agree 
with it. It is a variable usually used by scripts like ant invocation. JRE 
should find its internals itself without any pointer from the user.

Also before we get a very stable JRE I wouldn't want JAVA_HOME to point to 
harmony deploy build. It may result in quite unexpected behavior of other 
applications including aforementioned ant. When building Harmony VM it cannot 
overwrite JRE directory on windows because ant is being executed by Harmony 
JRE already (unless it crashes of course).
