I create a test folder and put the following file in it. I also created
build, src, init, dist,compile and clean folders under test.  I didn't see
any source files, so I added some to src and build. I received this message
from the build:
Target 'build' does not exist in this project.

This is the build.xml file I used.
<project name="MyProject" default="dist" basedir=".">

  <!-- set global properties for this build -->
  <property name="src" value="."/>
  <property name="build" value="build"/>
  <property name="dist"  value="dist"/>

  <target name="init">
    <!-- Create the time stamp -->
    <!-- Create the build directory structure used by compile -->
    <mkdir dir="${build}"/>

  <target name="compile" depends="init">
    <!-- Compile the java code from ${src} into ${build} -->
    <javac srcdir="${src}" destdir="${build}"/>

  <target name="dist" depends="compile">
    <!-- Create the distribution directory -->
    <mkdir dir="${dist}/lib"/>

    <!-- Put everything in ${build} into the MyProject-${DSTAMP}.jar file
    <jar jarfile="${dist}/lib/MyProject-${DSTAMP}.jar" basedir="${build}"/>

  <target name="clean">
    <!-- Delete the ${build} and ${dist} directory trees -->
    <delete dir="${build}"/>
    <delete dir="${dist}"/>

Are you referring to the full example at the end of "Using Ant"?  If you
are, I just tried it, and it works for me. Where doesn't it work for you?
