Nope. If you're in C:\abc, try to 'cd \xyz\dir1' and see what happens. To
get to C:\abc\xyz\dir1 from C:\abc, you would 'cd xyz\dir1'.

So, in Ant, if you're pointing to C:/abc, then specify xyz/dir1 to point
to C:/abc/xyz/dir1. (Note that I'm only willing to type those silly
backslashes when I'm referring you to a Winbloze command to run :)
