Okays - it is actually build.sh that sets the tools.dir directtory like 

So as soon as you use build.[sh|bat] then the tools.dir is overidden. Hmmmm. 
Have you considered making it work more like the demo/build.xml

The way I build demos is by cd'ing into apps/demo and then just "ant". If you 
have a look at the build file you will notice it has a cleverly positioned 
antcall back to the base build.xml (ie ../../build.xml) to make sure 
cornerstone.jar is built. You could do the same the other apps and then you 
would not need to use build.[sh|bat] you coul djust use ant.

yer/no ?
