The build file you are using has been designed for a version of Ant
that was current in April 2000 (when Tomcat 3.1 has been released). I
have not tried to find all problems, but it obviously depends on an
old feature where a target named init would be treated
differently. This won't work with Ant 1.2.

As you are not getting any error messages I doubt you are really using
Ant 1.2, most probably you pick up an older version of it from your
CLASSPATH (i.e. remove the ant.jar that shipped with Tomcat
3.1). After that you'll have to modify the sample build file to
actually work with Ant 1.2.

The best option might be to upgrade to Tomcat 3.2.1 anyway. I *hope*
the sample build files have been adapted to Ant 1.2 there.
