The problem is that users who are not active developers on the project may 
  want to build from source and may want to use Ant to do it. Keeping a 
working Ant build.xml makes it easier for the many users to build.

Or include ant build properties indicating where the needed jars are. I 
wouldn't see this as any more onerous than having to hack the local maven 
repo and would prefer this over putting jars in cvs.
