Not sure whether this has been true in 1.7.x which the commons build
files strive to be compatible with.  Maybe we should drop that goal or
at least modify the check to see whether ant-testutil.jar is in an
expected place.

Yes, I always use -lib switches to point to my locally built antunit.

and I also need to set -lib switches for the Antlib under test and even
to the test classes for some antlibs (AntUnit itself is such a case,
Compress is happy with just adding the Antlib).
