It depends on your project layout.
You can have a build.xml in each of your directories and
use <subant> (Ant 1.6).

Or you use a global build.xml for the work. The common tasks
you need for a build are using <fileset>s. Then insert a
selector in that filesets.
Ant makes a heavy use of that in its own buildfile.

  <selector id="needs.apache-bsf">
      <filename name="${optional.package}/Script*"/>
      <filename name="${optional.package}/script/**/*"/>
      <filename name="${optional.type.package}/Script*"/>
      <filename name="${util.package}/Script*"/>
    <available property="bsf.present"
    <javac srcdir="${java.dir}"
      <classpath refid="classpath"/>
      <selector id="conditional-patterns">
            <selector refid="needs.apache-bsf" unless="bsf.present"/>

DonĀ“t know. Maybe some hints in the manual. Yep, see "Tasks | Optional 
Tasks | EJB Tasks".

Fine :-)

See the <cvs*> core tasks.
