For me it's working by having the JAVA_HOME system property set.
What OS do you use?
I've used this article to set JAVA configuration in Ubuntu:


./  | grep java
   checking for java... /usr/bin/java
   checking for javac... /usr/bin/javac
   checking for javadoc... /usr/bin/javadoc
   checking for JAWT lib... -L/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/lib/amd64
   configure: WARNING: no suitable nasm (Netwide Assembler) found
   checking for JUnit 4... /usr/share/java/junit4.jar
   checking for included Hamcrest... Included in /usr/share/java/junit4.jar
   config.status: creating config_host/config_java.h

Hope it helps.
