Can be done by %HOME%\antrc_pre.bat and %HOME%\antrc_post.bat.
Fist file is executed before Ant and second after. So you could simply
set the value there and clean in the second file.

Developer engine:
  net use X: \\server\ant-share
  call X:\pre.bat

  call X:\post.bat
  net use X: /D

And you can maintain the batch files on a central location.

In Ant´s lib directories there are only libraries where _ANT_ relies on.
Not your project. These libs should be in a lib-folder under the project
root and under CVS control.
