Well, how do you call Ant on the command line?

All tasks not in a target are always executed, but the ones in targets
are executed only if their target is executed, and since you didn't
specify the project's default target, if you don't explicitly specify
the target name "foo" as argument to the build, it will not be
executed by default.

Just running "ant foo" should fix your problem. I don't see how else
this build could not work ;-) --DD
