I've tried to test for the availability of ant by say

<available property="ant.present" classname="org.apache.tools.ant.Task"/>

 but - oddly - the property ant.present is comes out always set to true, 
even when ant.jar is not in the classpath.
But if it's not the compilation fails.  So maybe it's a question of how 
the IDE deals internally with ant.
In any case, it's not a big issue.  If there are reasons not to add 
ant.jar to the libs, I'll simply copy ant.jar
to the lib dir and that solves it.

Cheers, Mauro
