Please have a look at the TSVN build scripts (they're NAnt scripts, not
Ant, but you'll get the point).
We also have to use (sometimes) full paths, but we put those into
separate files (*.tmpl), which each user has to make a copy, remove the
.tmpl extension of the copy, then edit that file to suit the absolute paths.

The main build script checks if those user defined files are present and
errors out if they're not.
