imo the 'distribution' you produce should come bundled with everything
you need to run it, it is very awkward to drop the distro on a bare
box and then have to install ant just to bootstrap that distribution
into a usable state

+1 to use ivy to not park jars in svn

+1 to have your official 'distribution' contain everything needed to run
