So it looks like a straightforward patch-- but we don't build ant from 
source. Starting to do that is theoretically possible, but not trivial.

Also, this patch is already accepted and targeted for 1.8.1.

I'll think about the compiling from source option. It would clearly give 
us more flexibility in situations like this. I seem to recall we ran 
into other problems with it in the past, though.
