build.bat/sh is used when building the official releases. Ant gets invoked directly for the Gump builds and when I'm working in Eclipse I usually invoke it directly too.

Should work with Ant 1.6.5 and above though might work with earlier versions. I upgraded the copy in the repository from 1.6.5 to 1.7.l recently.

I recall 'classes.zip' being in earlier JDKs. 1.2 perhaps. If it no longer exists in recent JDKs it will be ignored.
I've tested it with Sun JDK 6 before. It should still work.
