Subject: can't use $JOHN


I'm using the bleeding version of john on Linux. There is no problem with compiling, but I can't use $JOHN it means, I have to call the executable everytime with the full path.
$JOHN is defined, but nothing will be found

$ john -format:nt -show hash.txt 
fopen: $JOHN/john.conf: No such file or directory

$JOHN is still defined:
$ echo $JOHN
$ ls -l $JOHN/john.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 micha micha 108935 Jan 28 20:12 /home/micha/tools/JohnTheRipper-bleeding-jumbo/run//john.conf

It seems to be that $JOHN is empty:

$ john -list:build-info
