build.xml: ant build script
build.properties: properties for the ant.build script
(ie/ just say you want to make some properties configurable per user. You
tell ant to read the build.properties in the user's home directory, and then
the build.properties with the script -- anything defined in the user's home
directory will override anything defined in the default build.properties.
yes -- properties are defined the first time they're read, not the second, so
the first will override the second)
