It looks like the ant script is simply calling gradle, which comes bundled most 
of the time, in the form of a gradlew script. Gradle is not yet packaged in 
guix, and there is no gradle-build-system yet, so it's going to be a very 
difficult journey. If you are motivated, I can provide help and guidance.

Note that Kotlin doesn't depend on Scala, but gradle does. Kotlin is written in 
Kotlin, and building it in a bootstrapped way remains an open problem.

I have a few pointers for Scala, Kotlin and Gradle if you're interested.
