Both <fixcrlf> and <replace> will have encoding attributes in Ant 1.5
- and both lacked them in 1.4.1.  Ant 1.4.1 will always assume your
files are in the platform default encoding and there is no way around.

I'd say either switch to a nightly build (and 1.5beta when it is
ready, which should happen in a couple of days) or stick to your Perl
script until 1.5 has been released.

As an Ant developer I'd certainly urge you to at least give the beta a
try and help us squash bugs that are still in it.
