Are you running Ant 1.3?  There is a bug in its delete task -
includeemptydirs doesn't really work.

This way, the defaultexcludes attribute applies to the implicit
fileset of delete, not the explicit one.  Make that

<delete verbose="true" includeEmptyDirs="true"> 
  <fileset dir="." excludes="build.xml"  defaultexcludes="no"/> 

and it should pick up the files in your CVS directories as well.
