Subject Re: test environment variable and if statement

How about using this instead...

    <pathelement location="${helper.jar}"/>

and define ${helper.jar} either from an always-loaded property file???

Fixed paths are BAD in build.xml - use properties and other such techniques
and use indirection to make life much more pleasant and controllable!  :)
