Causing builds to break might be acceptable if you consider that those builds 
may actually be broken anyway, or at least on borrowed time, because of these 
unreported problems with the build. 

I think its far better to abort and force the user to fix the problem by way 
of removing the dead link or by coding round it in build.xml.
