Subject RE: [pool] Changing build.xml to get commons-pool.jar instead of "Apache Tomcat.jar"

Or you could set inheritAll="no" in your <antcall> and let pool's build.xml
set up its own properties.

Changing from ${name} to ${} will reduce but not eliminate
property-naming conflicts.  Consider the case where we'd like to add an
<antcall> from pool to build collections, etc.  You'd still need that
<param> call on occasion, indeed it may be safest to have it.

Beware, you may reopen the maven/gump/centipede can-of-worms. 

I'm open to but not especially energetic about making the commons
component's build processes more consistent.  Feel free to submit patches if
you'd like.
