It did a long time ago, but now only java files get pulled over. The reason
was that too much other cruft kept getting into the JAR file; random text
files, the odd bit of binary, etc. Now you have to be explicit about
bringing stuff in.

NB, you could do a tree copy in a way which is easier to re-use in followup

 <copy todir="${build}">
   <fileset dir="${src}" includes="**/*.properties,**/*.xml,**/*.dtd"/>
