Unfortunately, that's what I would consider a Jam bug. The problem isn't that
Jam relies on the environment variables getting set to specific values. The
problem is that it thunks all the environment variables into the Jam variables
AFTER setting up it's own values for those. Jam is currently assuming you
either don't have those in your environment, or are overriding them for
reasons of changing what the OS Jam thinks, is.

Renaming those variables to something like JAMOS is not backward compatible.
But changing the order of setting might be.
