Let me explain... a <depend> element indicates that one project depends 
on the jars that are produced by another project.  It is quite possible 
for a build to fail and still produce the jars - some projects produce 
web sites, javadocs, or run unit tests after they produce the jar.  In 
fact, some run the unit test before they produce the jar in order to 
prevent dependent projects from being built by gump.

In this case, the problem was that I removed a bit too much from the poi 
descriptor.  It declared no jars.

I've now corrected that.
