The partial chainsaw jar only occurs when chainsaw-libraries-present is 
not set.  In that case, the body of the build.chainsaw task is skipped 
due to the if condition not being set.  However, chainsaw.jar doesn't 
have the same if condition so its body will be executed regardless of 
the state of chainsaw-libraries-present.  The easiest way to reproduce 
it is to rename your build.properties so jakarta-oro is not located 
(might need to make sure it is off the classpath too).

I had not been trying to build chainsaw and had not set a 
build.properties file since it is not necessary to build a functional 

One approach would be to add the if condition to the chainsaw.jar task, 
so that if the body of build.chainsaw is skipped the body of the 
chainsaw.jar task is skipped.   Adding that condition would result in 
only log4j.jar being created under the conditions described.

The other would be to fail build.chainsaw if the libraries were 
missing.  To build just log4j.jar, you would need to build the 
log4j.jar target.
