Nevermind.  After digging through Ant source and documentation, I
realized one needs to set the erroronmissingdir="false" (available since
Ant 1.7.1) attribute on <srcfiles> (which is a fileset) so an exception
will not be thrown if the directory does not exist.

I'm guessing the reason that erroronmissingdir is not false by default
is for backwards compatibility.

Sorry for the interruption,
