Not exactly.

I just verified that on RedHat Linux 6.1 with the Sun JDK 1.2.2:

   The latest CVS version of Ant can bootstrap itself and build tools,
   tomcat, and watchdog.

   The last posted binaries for Ant (3.1 beta, dated March 8th), can build
   the latest (from CVS) versions of tools, tomcat, and watchdog.

Let me ask again: what version of Ant are you using?  Is it prior to the
last beta?  I don't believe that it is reasonable to assume that you can
pick one version of Ant and use it literally forever, but I will be glad to
work with you on a reasonable schedule for incorporating changes.
