I have every confidence it can, but I can't for the life of me see
what that ant script does. What is "" and what are the
expected properties?

You seem to be doing the following:

  Run to produce testvars.xml
  Run testvars.xml *with* ant
  Delete testvars.xml
  Run XSLT over input/build.xml to produce testvars.xml
  Run testvars.xml *with* ant *again*

That seems like a very strange Ant setup. What on earth is going on
that requires that much complexity?

Yes, and of course.
