Well, the difference is that, for instance, the "src" property above will 
literally be "src" where it would be something like 
"D:\base\path\to\my\build\src" if you used the "location" attribute.  Ant 
will generally survive with the relative path, but if you wanted to pass 
this path to, say, an external executable, you'd definitely want the fully 
qualified path returned by the "location" attribute (for obvious reasons).
