I've added a basic build target for checking that jars resolve (ivy 
branch only of course). Do:

cd [FORREST_HOME]/main
ant -buildfile ivy-build.xml

Note that you must be using the ant in our tools/ant directory or you 
must place the ivy jar file (found in tools/ivy) into your ant 
installations lib folder.

Note that you cannot yet build using this build file as I've only moved 
a handful of the jars to ivy. Devs should not waste time on trying to 
make it build (I have generic scripts ready to kick this off, if you 
really want to peek ahead look inside the tools/ivy/build-scripts dir).

You may also fin the output of the report target useful (look for the 
html in the build directory after you run it)
