Subject Location of ant.jar

Sending this directly this time...

I just ran into a problem building EMMA (,
because the build script expects to find ant.jar in the $ANT_HOME/lib
directory, and JPackage puts it in /usr/share/java.  One symlink and the
build works.

The obvious follow-up question is, whose bug is this?  Is it appropriate
to rely on the presence of $ANT_HOME/lib/ant.jar (doesn't seem entirely
unreasonable to me)?  Is it appropriate to ignore the user's CLASSPATH
in the process (seems less reasonable)?  Should the JPackage RPM provide
a symlink to conform to the file layout expected by Ant "clients"?

Have at it ...
