It looks like $LOGNAME is set by default (according to the login(1) man
page), $USER isn't necessarily, from what I can see. (I just tried it
out on my OpenSolaris image.) I checked the online versions of Solaris
man pages that FreeBSD has on their site, and it looks like $LOGNAME is
consistently available, at least back to SunOS 5.5.1.
