You could search the archives (marc.theaimsgroup.com seems to be down
ATM, but there is another one at
<http://www.mail-archive.com/ant-dev%40jakarta.apache.org/>) or simply
ask if you cannot find anything there - AFAIK nobody has submitted a
patch for this yet.

See the patches section of <http://jakarta.apache.org/site/source.html>.  
Send it to this list and use a meaningful subject line - maybe start
it with [PATCH] or [SUBMIT] so people can identify it quickly.

Make sure your patch is a patch against source code as new as possible
anyway, i.e. please download the sources from the nightly builds area
<http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-ant/nightly/> and create the
patch as diff output against this version.  There have been quite a
few changes since Ant 1.3 and it could be difficult to apply a patch
made against the 1.3 sources.
