depends="true" seems to to work fine for me.  There have been some changes
to the task since Ant 1.4.1 release, but nothing that appears relevant to
this situation.

Check isUpToDate method in
code.  There are some caveats to building Ant itself, if you've never done
it before.  You'll need the NetComponents.jar in your classpath (or in
lib/optional in Ant's CVS directory) to build the FTP task.  My routine is
to run bootstrap, then 'build dist'.
