I'm using ant 1.6.2. 

Meanwhile I had a look at the ant book and at the manual for
subant, but I'm still not sure how to pass the lucene jar,
it might be an ant poperty (value or location) or an
included xml file.
I made one failed attempt at passing a property to subant.
Would it be better to use absolute path names instead
of relative ones?
Any hints would be wellcome.
