When you type "ant test", I guess you are trying to build Ant 1.6 (CVS) with 
Ant 1.5.x. This won't work because Ant 1.6's build requires Ant 1.6 :-)

You can't use ant to build Ant. You need to bootstrap it. Have a read here
http://ant.apache.org/manual/install.html#buildingant

and see how you go.
