How about the following change to the build?
Uncomment the anteater-tests and remove the dependency of the test
target on the anteater-tests target, so that if you run 'build test'
only the unit tests are run. To run the Anteater tests you have to run
'build anteater-tests'. This in turn has a dependency on the
'block-anteater-tests' target that copies all anteater tests (located
in <block>/test/anteater) to 'build/test/anteater' where they are then
executed. The anteater-tests target starts with a big attention message
hinting to make sure the anteater.home property is correctly set.

So we can see how Anteater usage develops and decide later whether to
put Anteater into CVS.
