As I said then it works fine with the 1.3 version I have from sun and I
believe I have tried the 1.3 ibm linux version aswell (thou not sure). So
try going back to a stable 1.3 and not a beta. Alternatively you can type

./build.bat -version

if this brings up an error you downloaded an old version of ant and should
download it from site above. Otherwise try sending verbose output (ie with
-verbose flag to list. Then we may be able to help you but as it stands now
you haven't given us remotely enough information to work with :P
