If you download Ant's optional.jar (from the release builds) and put it in
your ANT_HOME/lib directory you won't have to <taskdef> anything and it'll
work as the documentation shows (provided junit.jar is in your classpath
also, just drop it in the ANT_HOME/lib directory too for convenience and
it'll automatically be put in the classpath).

The previous messages on this thread showing the <taskdef> were incorrect
anyway, its used for pointing at Ant task classes, not at the JUnit
