Hi Michael,

I've just committed some changes to Ant's ANT_15 CVS branch.

OK, both will now eval to true in <os family="z/os" />.

This is not quite possible with the current code as we have a single
method that returns the command to run depending on the OS and some
other code that executes it.  Trying to run env on non-Unix platforms
may result in something unexpected.

This will be interesting.

Unless you want to build Ant yourself, the changes that allow you to
deal with environment variables won't be there yet, you'll have to
wait for the next release.  Helping us to identify other potential
z/OS problems in 1.5beta1 would certainly be great.
