It was probably the RPM version getting in ahead of anything else...we 
changed the scripts in Ant1.7 so your own installation gets in there first.

1. Ant1.7 adds a -lib command to add new stuff to a lib directory
2. you can also stick jars into ~/.ant/lib, so that different users can 
have stuff in the classpath, even with a root-only ANT_HOME/lib
