I think you have an issue with your snippet...  You list retest6 and 
retest as properties...

Here is what I tried (note the consistent use of the property entitled 
retest6):


<project>
    <property  name = "confused"  value = "1"/>

    <echo> confused ${confused} </echo>

    <condition property="retest6" value="3" else="6">

        <equals arg1="${confused}" arg2="1" />

    </condition>

    <echo> retest ${retest6}</echo>
</project>

I get this:

     [echo]  confused 1
     [echo]  retest 3


If I don't set the property entitled confused (meaning it is never set), 
I get:

     [echo]  confused ${confused}
     [echo]  retest 6

The point is, you had a condition and set the property entitled retest6 
- but you output the property entitled retest?  Note no 6 in the 
property name...

Hope that helps...
