Well, tomcat depends on having ant binaries ( in the normal format ) 
in ant.home.

The convention used is that "foo.home" is the place where a foo
distribution is installed, it has nothing to do with the source or 
build structure.

BTW, Sam - you are right about the need to test the latest ( i.e. CVS top 
dir ) - it's an excelent way to find any interface or layout change that
may affect other projects, and maintain backward compatibility. 
Whenever I find some time I'll start using gump with the full

( I still believe we need a separate build using the "latest stable" - 
for a different purpose )
