There is no built-in one.

What probably would work is to create jar files for each of your
manifests (putting the manifests in as META-INF/MANIFEST.MF) and then
merge those jars with <jar> and <zipgroupfileset> setting the
filesetmanifest attribute to "merge".  This final jar would then
contain a merged manifest that you could extract with <unjar>.

No, it will not be a valid Manifest anymore.
