and look at my MANIFEST.MF and try to resolve those dependencies, too?

is now that I have some libs that are supposed to work as part of an Eclipse-based application
(and are thus compiled by PDE build) but should also be available as plain jars, compiled
by ant+ivy, and avoiding to redeclare all dependencies twice, once in MANIFEST.MF and once
in ivy.xml sounds great!

humm, maybe you could try the "extends" in the ivy.xml to reference the MANIFEST.MF
