I've noticed that when we run the Pega install or update scripts during product installation or upgrade, the scripts require ANT_HOME to be set.  The scripts are running fine, but our Release Management team is asking why these scripts require ANT.  They feel that builds shouldn't be done in a Production environment, so they're asking me for justification and an explanation of what the scripts are doing that require ANT.

The install/upgrade scripts are ant scripts.  They are not building anything but just using ANT_HOME to execute the ant script.
