Ah, we do use Ant to build Ant :-).

Build file is in CVS and included in the source distribution. I build an 
ant.jar several times a day, most days (and nights). It is not that hard.

1. Checkout the source from CVS.
2. Obtain any libraries you want to support
3. build dist

or if you want to install directly into your ANT_HOME

4. build install (or install-lite).
