While this would work lsb functions location in /lib and RH packaging of
mozilla scripts in /usr/lib/mozilla strongly hints ant/bin should go in
/usr/lib/ant/bin. So it might be better to use /usr/lib/ant as ANT_HOME,
with /usr/lib/ant symlinked to /var/lib/ant.

Note that right now I don't parse ANT_HOME/lib in rpm case, if everyone
agree on this layout I just might (I was thinking about doing it, justs
didn't want to get too many proposals on my hands).

Since this one is designed to allow classpath config, I'd say it belongs
more in /var/lib/ant

My proposal :


/usr/lib/ant/lib -> /var/lib/ant
/usr/lib/ant/bin/ant -> /usr/bin/ant
/var/lib/ant/ant.jar -> /usr/share/java/ant.jar
/var/lib/ant/ant-optional.jar -> /usr/share/java/ant-optional.jar
/var/lib/ant/jaxp-parser.jar -> /usr/share/java/jaxp-parser.jar

and so on
