Since what you are trying to do is the most basic type of process for Ant
to be used for, you'll need to include a bit more information than just
saying you've "not had much success". In what way doesn't it succeed for

If you want all your subdirectories included in the compile, from a single
target within a single top-level buildfile, you shouldn't need to list any
of them, but simply point 'srcdir' to the directory where your package
hierarchy starts.
