I'll take a stab and suggest u put a dir attribute on your war task. My docs 
say it's not required but since you're using the webxml attribute I'm 
guessing it's creating an implicit zipfileset object to prefix the web.xml 
file accordingly in your final output war file. I'm also guessing that since 
the implicit zipfileset is being used it needs a base dir from which to upll 
files from.
