Ant task to build the PDF

Our PDF build is dependent on XEP, which is installed on my desktop, so up to now I've needed to be here to build it (since it was a scenario run from inside Oxygen). I've now converted this into an ant task which can be run remotely at the command line. Lesson learned at some cost of time: you can't use this:

  <arg value="-fo ${foFile}"/>

Instead, you have to use this:

  <arg line="-fo ${foFile}"/>

Otherwise XEP doesn't find the FO file, and assumes the fo is coming from stdin; it then complains that the root element is not fo:root.
