It would be really nice if that warning can be suppressed.

I work on a project where Ant is used (under-the-hood), but only the JRE
is required.  Ant tasks used do not require the JDK.  We have to include
in the user documentation that the "tools.jar" message can be ignored,
but we still on occassion get a user asking about it.
