There is not an "include" mechanism like what you're describing in Ant right now.  However,
it would not be hard using some of
the shell tools that manipulate text files to construct a buildfile on the fly by copying
in standard components, before feeding
the resulting file to Ant.  You could do this with the C preprocessor (cpp), or the m4 utility,
for example.
