I don't think there is one - mine is probably quite uncommon, ANT_HOME
points to the bootstrap dir and I usually do a (./; ant test),
obviously not on Windows 8-).

one within Ant's CVS.

I thought only one testsuite would fail - it is a Unixism I've
introduced (who else) and that has been pointed out by Nico weeks ago.
It's on my TODO list to fix that.
