It would be telling in what way?
If I can't build ant on OS400, then there is a problem with ant on
If I can't run ant on OS400, then there is a problem with ant on OS400.

I'd rather deal with the problem I'm having rather than a potential
other problem that I don't have to deal with.

In my book, the whole idea of Java is that you can create it on one
platform and then run it on many. It may sound selfish, but I'm not
interested in whether ant will build on OS400, mearly in trying to
figure out why it won't run.

I really don't see how trying to build it will get me any closer to why
it doesn't run.
