As Jason says, it's much better to just install Ant.  How many open
source projects using `make` have you seen which bundle it?  That's
what I thought.

The only reasonable need for bundling Ant is if you have non-standard
changes upon which you rely.  In such a scenario, on usually writes
platform-specific scripts to apply the custom patches and run the Ant
bootstrapper.  For XML-RPC, we definitely do not have such a scenario.

                             Thanks, Dan
