Excellent catch! I used the verbose flag, and although Ant didn't print the
entire command, the resulting output was sufficient to disclose the symptom.
The classpath for the problematic project includes a whole heap of JAR files,
as well as a lot of other options. (Those potential problems are less obvious
in a build.xml, especiall with *.jar pattern matching.) I think what must have
happened is that adding one-too-many external links cause the command to be
truncated before any source files were specified, so Javadoc figured it had
nothing to document.

In the end, adding useexternalfile="true" solved the problem for me. Thanks!
