First I check if the jars are available:

     <target name="check-jars">
         <condition property="jars.present">
                     <available file="${main.jar1.dir}"/>
                     <available file="${main.jar2.dir}"/>
                     <available file="${contrib.jar1.dir}"/>
                     <available file="${contrib.jar2.dir}"/>
                     <available file="${contrib.jar3.dir}"/>
                     <available file="${junit.jar1.dir}"/>
                 <isset property="disconnected"/>

then I fetch them if present:

     <target name="fetch-jars" unless="jars.present"
      description="Fetches needed JAR files from the Internet">
         <get src="${main.jar1.url}" dest="${main.jar1.dir}"/>
         <get src="${main.jar2.url}" dest="${main.jar2.dir}"/>
         <get src="${contrib.jar1.url}" dest="${contrib.jar1.dir}"/>
         <get src="${contrib.jar2.url}" dest="${contrib.jar2.dir}"/>
         <get src="${contrib.jar3.url}" dest="${contrib.jar3.dir}"/>
         <get src="${junit.jar1.url}" dest="${junit.jar1.dir}"/>

I've stopped short of getting the ant jar files but this should be possible 
also.  Ant needs a better mechanism for auto installing jars.

Is the add-on library you're talking about 
ruper?  http://www.krysalis.org/ruper/
