ANT <jar> target does not create entries for directories.

Servlet servers often require that JAR, and specially WAR files have entries for directories,
even if they are empty.

The version of ANT tested leaves directory entries out of JAR, and ZIP files.

The behavior is incompatible with that of the commandline version of jar provided with Sun's
JDK. It is also incompatible with that of InfoZip zip.
