It is not necessary. You have already a runable program (ant).

For what? A buildfile is designed for on particular project. 
Most of a buildfile can easily adapted to other projects, but not really
one by one.

> 2#How use Ant.apache for interpret LISP programs
Ant has no build in capabilities for LISP. You can call your LIST
via <exec> task.
   <project default="run">
       <target name="run">
           <exec executable="the-lisp-interpreter">
               <arg value="the-lisp-program"/>

I did a little bit googling, but havenĀ“t found any about that.
