You can do it the XML way 8^):

<!DOCTYPE project PUBLIC "-//ANT//DTD project//EN" "file:./ant.dtd" [
   <!ENTITY include SYSTEM "file:./header.xml">

<project ...>

with a DTD created by <antstructure>. 

You might need to play with the URI syntax, especially for relative
paths. The file:./ way is reported to work, but it might depend on
your XML parser (and the version of Ant).

Going to add this to the FAQ after some testing with Ant 1.1/current
Ant alpha 1.2 as well as Xerces/JAXP reference.
