Usually Ant would tell you it couldn't find the task definition if it
was a CLASSPATH problem. This looks more like a problem in the
document structure of your XML file, i.e. <available> is probably not
nested inside a <target> (or this one is not nested into a <project>).

The most common error I find in my own buildfiles is that I close tags
by accident, something like

<target name="foo" />
  <available ...>

could cause an error like the one you've reported (remove the slash in
the start tag of <target>).
