+ |                              DESCRIPTION                                   |
+ In install.html it says:
+ 
+ Your are now ready to build Ant:
+ 
+   build -Ddist.dir=<directory_to_contain_Ant_distribution> dist    (Windows)
+ 
+   build.sh -Ddist.dir=<directory_to_contain_Ant_distribution> dist    (Unix)
+ 
+ This will create a binary distribution of Ant in the directory you specified.
+ 
+ This is not the case.
+ The dist target does an antcall and redefines "dist.dir" to the value 
+ of "dist.name", so doing
+    build.sh -Ddist.dir="../dist" dist
+ still creates a dist in ./jakarta-ant-1.4alpha
+ 
+ But the default target is dist-lite, and it DOES honour the dist.dir setting.
+ 
+ I'm not sure if the bug really is in the docs, because none of that actually 
+ makes much sense to me, but I guess someone had a reason to set it up this way.
