It works fine on my box. I do have the gray background issue on Linux  
terminals and Savant though. However, ant and Savant work fine on Mac.  
Here's my ~/.antrc:


You might also check out your terminals settings. Most modern  
terminals actually translate the escape sequences displayed into a  
color palette. This essentially translates a 4 bit color into a 24 bit  
color. If Ant is sending a sequence for a black background, your  
terminal might be printing that out as gray. I'm using iterm and just  
use the Dark Background profile, which works great.
