We include all the tools and libraries needed to build/test our app. So our project folder has a build directory which contains the nant binaires. It includes 3rd PArty folder which includes the mbunit libraries and binaries to run the test. Everything is self contained in the svn project folder. There are a few exceptions. We don't include our IDE (Visual Studio) nor do we include SQL Server or DbGhost (a db change mangement tool). Those are expected to be on any dev's machine or build machine.

The idea here being any one that has a machine with the .Net framework can checkout and build using the build script and be able to run the app.
