Usual thing.

Maybe on share.

Usually you have two different parts:
- the project sources
- the tools (like cvs, ant, jdk)

The sources are helt in a scm system. Part of the sources is the buildfile.
Therefore the buildfile is everywhere at the same location: the
of the project. 
Doesnt matter whether its on c:\myproject or /user/jhm/java/myproject.
The programmer changes to that rootdirectory and after that all is

And the buildfile uses relative paths which are resolved against ${basedir}
which defaults to the directory of the buildfile itself.

Good luck.
