If I set an environment variable such as in the following example:

   export NO_GC=1
   export WITH_CLUSTER=1

... and then run ant,  will I be able to refer to these variables 
within build.xml?  Basically I am hoping to be able to replace
some scripts with a few ant targets which use the 'echo' task,
and will be conditional on the setting of these variables.
It would be easier to do so if I could do it without having to 
redefine  these environment variables in other files.

documentation which is  related to Environment variables in the 
Could you be more specific or show me the URL?
