Through DefaultLocalMavenRepositoryLocator.parseLocalRepoPathFromMavenSettings() (from Gradle)

We end up calling DefaultSettingsBuilder.interpolate() (from maven-settings-builder.jar)

Which creates a new EnvarBasedValueSource, which uses OperatingSystemUtils to retrieve OS level environment variables. (from plexus-utils.jar)

On Windows, this runs "cmd.exe /c set" and on *nix, it runs "env". The set of environment variables is cached in EnvarBasedValueSource

Later versions of plexus-utils do not fork a process to get environment variables, so we could either upgrade plexus-utils, the Maven libraries, both or implement our own SettingsBuilder to read settings.xml.
