Subject ANT_HOME set incorrectly, please change error message

Hi, 
this is Nick and I'm kind of a big fan of ant.

I spent my whole afternoon searching the ant source files for the solution 
why it suspiciously didn't work anymore after re-installing.
I got an error message telling that my JAVA_HOME isn't set properly and that 
surprised me very much, because this variable has been set correctly for 
years. Alright, I checked and tried, and I didn't find anything. I scanned 
your sources but everything looked fine. After a while I checked the ant 
script for hints and then there was the solution, I typed:

echo $ANT_HOME

into the script and it resulted in:

/usr/bin/..

well, that isnt good, and the reason is simple: i put a hard link to ant into 
/usr/bin.

ok, that was stupid, but It isn't nice that the error message just lies about 
the incorrectly set variable!

please check that and stay tuned =)

regards,

Nick
