To build Struts with Ant, you need to create a file based on the
in CVS, and acquire all the dependencies it mentions. 

The dependency your message complains about is a missing servlet.jar. As mentioned, this are
shipped with your container (e.g. Tomcat). Tomcat 4 ships it in $TOMCAT\common\lib.

One short cut is to getting started is to use the JARS  in the lib folder from Struts 1.1
and add the new JARs from there. 

Another shortcut would be to install Maven ( and use the new Maven setup.
It's still under development, but it do work. :) 

HTH, Ted.
