Where does 'make sanity' look for the ANT version?

Thanks for looking into that for me, I'll keep a note of the location
of Sanity.gmk going
forwards. I have managed to resolve the issue, it was a curious case where my
1.8.2 ANT install couldn't find $ALT_BOOTDIR//lib/tools.jar and
therefore 'failed', the
build then defaulted back to an ant under the langtools folder.
I corrected a permissions problem on the tools.jar file and make
sanity ran smoothly
after that. Now having fun trying to find the exact Ubnutu package
that contains the
X11 headers the build needs, but that's a different story :-)
