I am using IBM JVM -> JDK1.3.1s.

I kind of looked at the source code and tried something, which works but is not 
the "way-to-go". I see that ant looks for a "defaultManifest.mf" and tries to 
read it. This file is present in "ant.jar". When I ftp the ant.jar onto my 
remote host, I have to binary ftp it, and so the defaultManifest.mf becomes a 
file of junk characters as the remote host tries to look at it as EBCDIC 
characters and not ASCII which was how it was created in the first place. When 
I remove the defaultManifest.mf from the ant.jar and instead create a 
defaultManifest.mf on the remote host, it works fine!
