Subject Re: Building Ant 1.7beta
Date Sun, 27 Aug 2006 01:43:10 GMT
Got it working after running bootstrap.sh.  After that, the rest of your 
commands worked.  Thanks.

It would be really useful to point out to other naive folks like me that 
bootstrap.sh should be run to build ant.  I went with the build.xml, 
which seemed logical to me.  The INSTALL and README files contained no 
helpful information and look like they're just the default files that 
are distributed with ant.

Thanks,

Mark McKay
