Are there any plugins for Eclipse that will generate an ant script from within a project?

I don't think you need an extra plugin. Look At File | Export, and under General | Ant Buildfiles, then select the project.

I can't vouch for it, because I've never used it, but I've run across this before: http://www.geocities.com/richard_hoefter/eclipse2ant/

But if you're starting from scratch on your build environment, why not go with Maven? It can generate your eclipse environment for you, so you don't have to mess around with .classpath and .project definitions, and it can manage all your dependencies for you.
