I've tested 1.9.7 with the above change to the ant wrapper script
(I've copy pasted the "raw" version of the merge to 1.9.x of the above
pull request) on Solaris 11, but it doesn't work. Not with
esc_tool=sed and neither with esc_tool=awk. It's easy to test by
simply executing "ant -version".

See the output below:

[[[
bash-4.1> uname -a
SunOS hostname-redacted 5.11 11.3 i86pc i386 i86pc
bash-4.1> ./ant.new -version   ### with esc_tool=sed
Buildfile: build.xml does not exist!
Build failed
bash-4.1> vi ant.new   ### change line 25 to esc_tool=awk
bash-4.1> ./ant.new -version
awk: syntax error near line 1
awk: illegal statement near line 1

I don't understand the sed command (I'm not much of a sed expert), but
I understand why the awk command fails: on Solaris "awk" really is the
"old awk", without the "new awk" extensions added in 1984 or so. This
means "gsub" is not available in "awk" on Solaris. To use gsub, you
have to invoke "nawk" on Solaris.

So if you want the awk variant to work on Solaris, you either have to
do it without gsub, or use nawk as executable (but I guess nawk won't
work on some other unix platforms).

It would probably be easier to make the sed statement work, but I have
to experiment a bit with that.
