Subject Ant 1.6.1 Build fail on Mac OX X 10.3.2 (G5)
Date Mon, 01 Mar 2004 14:52:11 GMT

I am upgrading from 1.5.3 and am having a few problems. I get the
following failure when I try to build the 1.6.1 source on a Dual G5
running OS X 10.3.2.

apache-ant-1.6.1 > ./ install-lite
... Bootstrapping Ant Distribution
... Compiling Ant Classes
Note: Some input files use or override a deprecated API.
Note: Recompile with -deprecation for details.
... Copying Required Files
... Building Ant Distribution
Buildfile: build.xml




Created dir: /Library/Packages/apache-ant-1.6.1/build/lib

file:/Library/Packages/apache-ant-1.6.1/build.xml:602: The <selector> 
data type doesn't support the "unless" attribute.

This looks as though it s using an old ant version, but the old 1.5.3 
ant is no longer
in any path. I also tried using the binary distribution but got

         at java.lang.Class.newInstance0(
         at java.lang.Class.newInstance(

(This also happened on a Linux box). The JAVA_HOME, ANT_HOME, CLASSPATH
and PATH are all seem to be set correctly as far as I can tell - it 
certainly was ok for 1.5.3.
The problems certainly look like paths not being set up correctly, but 
I am at loss
to see which.

Any help here would be appreciated.
