You could use an ant macrodef. e.g.

<macrodef name="dependency" description="Macro to install an ivy dep in 
the same format as in an ivy file">
	<attribute name="org"/>
	<attribute name="name"/>
	<attribute name="rev"/>
	<attribute name="conf"/>
             <ivy:install settingsRef="geonet.enterprise.settings"
		overwrite="true" transitive="true" haltonfailure="false"
		organisation="@{org}" module="@{name}"
		from="${from.resolver}" to="${to.resolver}"/>

Now you can just copy and paste the dependencies section into an ant 
task unaltered (well, you'll have to strip out exclude bits, etc.).

Alternatively, you could probably do something with an ivy 
post-resolve-dependency trigger 
calling an ant target that calls ivy:install.
