Hi Bill,

>Any suggestions?

try this :

$ jar tvf $ANT_HOME/lib/optional.jar | grep -i ftp
  3264 Tue Aug 12 14:07:50     2003 
  1309 Tue Aug 12 14:07:50     2003 
 15759 Tue Aug 12 14:07:50     2003 

If you do not get the output listed above, then your optional.jar is 
missing the ftp support class and your ant installation cannot support 
the ftp task.

I do not know what gentoo is. Is this a particular sort of UNIX ?

You do not need to have anything in the CLASSPATH before starting ant, 
nor NetComponents.jar under jre/lib/ext. :-(

You can also try ant1.6beta3 with commons-net.jar. :-)
