------- Additional Comments From bodewig@apache.org  2003-08-22 14:23 -------
<delete>
  <fileset dir="..." followsymlinks="false"/>
</delete>

should be as good.

The dir attribute (together with the includes and excludes related attributes) of
<delete> have only been retained for backwards compatibility when the support
for nested filesets were added in Ant 1.2.  If we added all new features of
filesets (like symlink handling which was added way after 1.2) to <delete> that
would be cumbersome.

Simply don't use dir, use a nested fileset and gain complete control.
