What have you set ANT_HOME to?  It should point to the directory containing 
the bin/ and lib/ subdirectories.  If you installed from a binary download, 
that means you need to set ANT_HOME to $install-dir/jakarta-ant-1.4.1, where 
$install-dir is the directory that you extracted the zip/tar into.

If you're not using win 95/98/Me, you don't have to set ANT_HOME, the 'ant' 
script will (try to) figure it out.  So, try unsetting ANT_HOME and see how 
you go.

If you are using win 95/98/Me, watch for a long ANT_HOME path.  Try installing 
ant in, say, C:\ant.
