I can't remember the specific reasons why that won't expand...but I've had 
that issue in the past.  What I've done is to create a deref macrodef for 
that purpose.  Here is a fix (not sure its what you want):

<project name="Application Deployment" default="task" basedir=".">
     <macrodef name="deref">
         <attribute name="property"/>
         <attribute name="value"/>

         <sequential>
             <property name="@{property}" value="${@{value}}"/>
         </sequential>
     </macrodef>

     <property file="build.properties"/>
     <target name="task">
         <echo>${env}</echo>
         <deref property="myProperty" value="${env}.test"/>
         <echo>${myProperty}</echo>
     </target>
</project>

When I run using the same build.properties, I get this:


> ant -Denv=IT1

task:
      [echo] IT1
      [echo] testest1

BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 0 second
