I don't remember the details but I think we needed something from
ant-launcher.jar because of a dependency of some other classes that
get loaded by the forked VM.  So it was not an attempt to get all of
Ant seen by the forked VM but more an attempt to get enough of Ant
seen to work at all.

I'd say we explicitly include the required parts of Ant in the
classpath of the forked tests.
