No idea what the cause was but the line 

for %%i in ("%ANT_HOME%\lib\*.jar") do call "%ANT_HOME%\bin\lcp.bat" "%%i"

failed while build.bat is running. (ie produced nothing) However if I
install ant into another directory it runs fine. I have had similar issues
before but never known the cause (Win98, Win95B and Win98se all exhibit
this). The result was that building would fail as ant.jar never gets added
to CP - not sure what the problem is though ;/
