The switch doesn't appear to be there at the moment...

Can I suggest the following patch to bin/ant for Mac OS X at the moment 
(replacing last line):

if [ $( expr $OSTYPE : '^[dD]arwin.*' ) > 0 ]; then
	$JAVACMD -classpath "$LOCALCLASSPATH" -Dant.home="${ANT_HOME}" 
$ANT_OPTS "$@"
	$JAVACMD -classic -classpath "$LOCALCLASSPATH" 
-Dant.home="${ANT_HOME}" $ANT_OPTS "$@"

On Mac OS X 10.0.4 the value of OSTYPE in the /bin/sh shell appears to be 
"darwin1.0", but it is "Darwin1.3" in Bash and "macos" in csh and tcsh!
