[syslog-ng] Having trouble with java-modules

our build of 3.7 on Redhat 6.7 uses the following command sequence

export GRADLE_HOME=/usr/local/gradle-2.6/bin
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java
./configure --enable-pcre \
   --enable-json \
   --disable-python \
   --with-java \

but this does not control which java is used at runtime. You will still 
need to use ldconfig to pick up the path to the libjvm.so library file.

Hope this gets you on your way.
