It now says

"This element is identical to the manifest task, but its file and mode
attributes will be ignored."

which is still wrong, Ant will fail because of the not-supported
attribute.  Simply leave the attribute out.

But it probably won't help you anyway, as <manifest> cannot be used to
merge manifests encountered in the jars you are adding from.  Ant 1.6
(still alpha) has a "filesetmanifest" attribute that you could use to
merge the manifests.

But again, this will probably not help you as the signature itself
won't be valid after that.

If you wanted to distribute your resulting jar, you'd be in violation
of JAF's license, BTW.
