I grabbed the patch from your webrev and the tests is now passing for me 
- thanks.

I can't say if SOFTTOKEN_DIR is needed or not but it looks like it is 
used by

One thing I see in the test is that TESTJAVA is no longer set when 
running interactively. I guess you could default it to "java" so that it 
runs the JDK on the PATH. Alternatively the test could fail if not set 
(there are examples of both approaches in the test tree).
