That's normal.  The note says ant-trax.jar is removed because TrAX (not
ant-trax.jar) is included in ...

TraX is the javax.xml.transform package and friends.  ant-trax.jar used
to contain classes of Ant that are dependent on TraX.  Since Ant 1.8.x
requires Java 1.4+ and TraX is part of the Java 1.4+ API, the contents
of said file have been merged into ant-nodeps.jar.

I don't think the added or missing jar is your problem but rather that
you've hit bug
<> or maybe

Ant 1.8.2 should fix it in either case.
