Perhaps if they standardized on the Maven and Continuum build tools they won't have to deal with disparate configurations as much.

Well, I don't think build tools are the source or the solution for the issues they discussed. Ant seems to be serving them pretty well on that front. They are hitting design and contract issues across the multiple projects at the level of their own APIs, which are much trickier to resolve than external library dependencies.
