I don't really understand this, sorry.

The build files for these projects don't work with any released
version of Ant as the file attribute hasn't been there before.  People
who have adapted to this change are obviously willing to track Ant
development closer than most other people, they even require their
developers to run unstable versions of Ant.

Which nightly build of Ant are you using there?  How many bugs have
been fixed since then?  At the same time you update Ant for all these
projects, you could add the four letters dest to the attribute name in
the build files.
