The recommended way to do this uses the <pathconvert>
task.  In Ant 1.6.5:

<pathconvert refid="my.path.id" property="my.path" />
<echo>$${my.path}=${my.path}</echo>

In Ant 1.7:

<pathconvert refid="my.path.id" />

You're welcome.  ;)

P.S.  You -could- also use
<echo>${toString:my.path.id}</echo>

But that's technically unsupported.
