Where is CLEARCASE_ROOT defined?

My OS is Windows NT.  I run clearmake with GNU compatibility.  We recursively build our libraries and applications.  I have the following question from our top level makefile:

# VOB_ROOT
#
VOB_ROOT = $(CLEARCASE_ROOT)

Where is CLEARCASE_ROOT defined?  what's it's value.  Our top level makefile refers to CLEARCASE_ROOT but where is it defined?

CLEARCASE_ROOT
       (automatically set by the setview command -- do not set  this  variable
       yourself)  The  full  pathname of the root directory of a set view pro-
       cess.  For example, the command 'setview bugfix'  creates  a  shell  in
       which CLEARCASE_ROOT is set to '/view/bugfix'.

       Default: not set in a process that was not created by setview.

Tried SET in a command window?

On NT/W2k/Xp et. al. you should find that in the registry under

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment

Alternatively, you can set/change that using "My Computer|Properties|Advanced|Environment Variables"

BTW, using "set" is restricted to the current console window where the command is executed, so its use is limited.

It's not in the above registry nor it shows up by typing set in a command window.

Then set it there. These environment variables are passed to any process that is created, so you will get that stuff working by providing the correct value.

My stuff is working for a long time.  I never had to set CLEARCASE_ROOT to my environment.  
Is this generated when clearmake is run?

When 'clearmake' sets that environment variable for the processes it launches, this will work also.

When 'clearmake' sets that environment variable for the processes it launches, this will work also.
