OK, but you can't use ant.home since ant.home is set to "." by build.bat.
I'll do some work with it if I get time.

OK, I'll hang out for those changes.

There is another issue. You are using the build classes in the classpath
while you are building them. The old scripts created an ant.jar in lib just
for doing builds. This ant.jar was only touched by the bootstrap process
(not the build process). Writing on classes in the classpath can lead to
undesirable effects. As an extreme example, try

build clean main

Still fails on NT4 for me. I'll investigate further if I have some time.

Thanks for the other changes. The full-dist targets look good. I assume it
was intentional to remove the source from the binary distribution. That
makes sense to me.

Version stuff is a little mixed up but its there

Ant version January 24 2001 compiled on January 24 2001
