    The optional.jar is no longer distrubted with Ant. It has been
    broken up into many little jars.

    It used to be in 1.5 that the "Core Task" as indicated by the
    documentation were ant.jar and the "Optional Tasks" as indicated
    by the documentation were in optional.jar.

    As of 1.6 ant.jar still contians "Core Tasks" while the optional
    tasks are broken out into separate jars, generally grouped by
    tasks, but sometimes not, as in the case of JavaCC being in
    ant-nodeps.jar .

    Hope this helps.
