Dependset srcfileset does not handle absolute path

           Summary: Dependset srcfileset does not handle absolute path
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.2
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: mxlehma@qwest.com


I am trying to use the srcfileset within a dependset where the includes contain 
absolute paths to the actual files.  This doesn't work with srcfileset.  Here 
is an excerpt from the build.xml file:

        <dependset>
            <srcfileset dir="/" includes="D:/config/env/build.properties" />
            <targetfileset dir="${build.ejb}" includes="${messageTempFile}" />
        </dependset>

The build never recognizes changes to the build.properties file so it never 
rebuilds the target.  The following will work:

        <dependset>
            <srcfileset dir="/" includes="config/env/build.properties" />
            <targetfileset dir="${build.ejb}" includes="${messageTempFile}" />
        </dependset>

As well as using srcfilelist instead.  Here the absolute path works:

        <dependset>
            <srcfilelist dir="/" files="D:/config/env/build.properties" />
            <targetfileset dir="${build.ejb}" includes="${messageTempFile}" />
        </dependset>

This causes a problem for me because I was really trying to reuse a patternset, 
as follows:
            <srcfileset dir="/">
                <patternset refid="tokenFilterFiles" />
            </srcfileset>

where the patternset contained absolute paths.

I tested it out on 1.5.2 as well as the latest 1.6alpha from 3-18-2003, and the 
problem exists in both.
