It looks like the antrun plugin would allow me to use ant to prompt the
user.  Haven't tried it yet.

I'm not sure that would be sufficient for Adobe.  For example, we altered
the license between Flex 4 and Flex 4.5.  A login wouldn't let you pick up
that change.

Maybe Apache Flex or Adobe could provide a plugin to show the licenses like
we do in the installer and additionally, remember which ones you accepted so
that subsequent builds can be unattended.
