I didn't look at your build file and just thought you'd be setting
things like the debug attribute for javac based on this.

I'm sure there must be an easier solution, but having two <ant> task
in separate targets (guarded by if/unless attributes) one with and one
without a nested property element would work.

<target name="with-debug" if="debug">
  <ant ...>
    <property name="debug" value="${debug}" />

<target name="without-debug" unless="debug">
  <ant ... />

<target name="call-subproject" depends="with-debug, without-debug" />
