Well, as I said before I'm pretty sure that WAS 6.0 bundles Ant 1.5.4; you 
should be able to confirm that by running "ws_ant -version".

Assuming that I'm correct then the answer would be no: Ant 1.5.4 can't run 
build files that are written to work with 1.6.5, thus the version of Ant 
bundled with WAS 6.0 can't either.
