yes, ivy:buildlist ignores the files in subdirs, and as you say, 
<subant> will pick up the main directories builds.

But I dont want to have to create a .lib dir for every sub project in a 
build. somehow they have to pick up the  parent's .lib dir. Otherwise 
unless you play a lot with symlinks or SVN, you cannot use this feature 
in hierarchical projects.
