No idea who has created the Ubuntu packages for Ant, they never asked
the Ant community for advice.  In general the Ant developers recommend
to use the official Ant distributions instead of whatever is part of
the Linux package siyste, of your choice.

Some distributions are also known for modifying the Ant bash wrapper
script leading to problems that are hard to track down for us.
