Yep. Bootstrapping was intended to be used only for compiling in
non-compatible changes to Ant itself. Nobody else the world should have to
do it, nor should you have to do it often yourself. You should be able to
use an older version of ant to compile a newer one (assuming you placed the
jar on your classpath somewhere safe and aren't using the one that's being
built by the workspace).
