I guess only OpenVMS JDK developers could answer that. I would presume that System.getenv
would return something suited to being passed back to Runtime.exec. If not, they 
will need to supply a better patch.

(I presume there are no Ant committers with access to an OpenVMS test environment. BCCing
Knut Wannheden, who submitted a patch in 2003, and Meg Garrison who I recall 
worked on OpenVMS tooling at one point.)
