Simplify ant build scripts to cut build time

      Description

      Current build system was intended to

      • A) Allow normal builds from project root
      • B) Allow builds of specific "internal" targets from modules/ directory
      • C) Allow builds of any target of a module from the modules/<submodule>/ directory

      The last one (C) is never used and complicates maintenance of the build system.
      This has led to rebuild of core modules 20 times during a normal build.

      By simplifying (and removing C), we can prevent such rebuilds.

      This will not only save time, but allows slimmed down binary installations to sym-link between libraries that are the exact same when present for example in both dist/ejbca-ejb-cli/ and dist/clientToolBox/ (at least until we have something like DSS-1042).
