Having read the doc (again) and downloaded optional.jar and netcomponents.jar (on an apache
cvs site), and found that :

    <ftp action="send"  server="${url}" userid="${uid}" password="${pwd}" remotedir="${rootdir}"
        <fileset dir="." >
           <include name="**/*"/>

was close to what I wanted, (assuming the remote directory tree is in place and no files are
being deleted)...

all I can say is:  never mind.
