Thanks, Didi!

That really helped. I could not figure out what was getting parsed to set 
JAVA_HOME, thanks for indicating those scripts. In my environment there is a 
java-home.local; it pulls the home by running # exec java-config 
--select-vm=icedtea-7 --jre-home  , which outputs a warning message because I 
have icedtea-bin-7 installed. I could change this script, or emerge icedtea-7 
from sources (which is what I'll do, since I am not partial to binary builds). 
OVirt isn't in the main portage tree; I should contact the overlay maintainer 
to correct this script.

The jre to use is determined by the script java-home (usually in 
/usr/share/ovirt-engine/bin, not sure about gentoo and/or your $PREFIX).
IIRC only openjdk 1.7.0 is supported. If you look at this script, you see that 
if you put in its directory a script called java-home.local it will be called 
instead, thus letting you override that. Just add there a script outputting the 
JAVA_HOME you want and retry.
