OK, I see.  Problem is, that data types defined in a build file are
not inherited by subbuilds - this limitation will dissapear at some
point, but right now there is not much you can do.

A workaround would be to define a property from your path in the
parent build file, this one is going to be passed down to your
subbuilds as well - and you come back to a "real" path via
<pathelement path="${my-dummy-property}" />.
