I apologize for not being clear, I don't want the full path, just the name of the current directory.

Actually ${basedir} doesn't necessarily represent the current working
directory, since the build file can be run from a directory other than
${basedir} (eg., via the -find flag), or 'basedir' may be set to some
directory other than where the build file actually lives.

Use ${user.dir} to get the current working directory. Use <basename> to
get the last element in the path.
