A small problem occurred  when I tried to build from the source.

fetch-classlib-libs:

BUILD FAILED
/home/mackie/harmony/build.xml:358: The following error occurred while
executing this line:
/home/mackie/harmony/build.xml:366: The following error occurred while
executing this line:
/home/mackie/harmony/working_classlib/build.xml:74: The following error
occurred while executing this line:
/home/mackie/harmony/working_classlib/make/properties.xml:530: The following
error occurred while executing this line:
/home/mackie/harmony/working_classlib/make/properties.xml:519: No supported
regular expression matcher found: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:
org.apache.tools.ant.util.regexp.Jdk14RegexpRegexp

How do I resolve this? I'm used to using maven2 rather than ant. So I'm a
bit unfamiliar on what to do. I used "ant -Dauto.fetch=true" as the
execution command.
