Hi Daniel, Thank you very much for the patch.
Ant properties can be overridden from the command line, this is preferable since it avoids a patch. The syntax is 'ant -Dfoo=bar', here is an example with the zookeeper package: https://sources.debian.net/src/zookeeper/3.4.6-4/debian/rules/#L19 For CDBS based packages additional Ant properties can be specified in debian/rules with the DEB_ANT_ARGS variable.
