codepage problems with manifest file when using jar task

           Summary: codepage problems with manifest file when using jar task
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.1
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: neal.johnston-ward@ubs.com


The OS is IBM z/OS 1.2.

When using the jar task on z/OS, the manifest.mf cannot be read. (The error is
also on ear and war tasks). 

When the manifest file is in ascii format (having been transmitted as binary
from the IDE to the z/OS based source control system) The following error is
produced:

[jar] Manifest is invalid: Manifest line "(/>ัรมหศ๎มสหั?>

BUILD FAILED
file:/home/t129563/projects/deploy/genericUBSbuild.xml:32: Invalid Manifest:
/home/t129563/projects/trade2v2/TradeEJBs/bin/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
        at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.Jar.getManifest(Jar.java:225)
        at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.Jar.getManifest(Jar.java:201)
        at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.Jar.createManifest(Jar.java:284)
        etc.... 

The manaifest class is using a Reader and therefore trying to translate from
native encoding (IBM-1047). But the file is not in nmative encoding, and it
would not be natural for it to be under these circumstances (in a source control
repository).

When the manfiest on z/OS is in EBCDIC format (for the purposes of testing this)
, then the build runs through OK but the resulting manifest file in the jar is
still in EBCDIC format and is therefore useless.
