Hmmm ... I originally tried that. I got:


C:\jakarta\jakarta-tomcat-4.0\catalina\build.xml:64 Directory
C:\jakarta\jakarta-tomcat-4.0\catalina\build\server\lib creation was not
successful for an unknown reason

That worked like a champ =)

We should probably stick a one-liner comment in the file with a heads-up.

Amy's soultion works nicely, but it does mean that all of the supporting
libraries would have to be on the same logical drive as the build. I
don't personally care, since we don't run too much on Win, but I don't
know if you guys do. If so, I could try to track down the aforementioned
"creation was unsuccess " failure and try to find out why escaping
didn't work for me. This box is administered by someone who knows
Windows from a hole in the ground, so it's probably not anything as
obvious as my goofy home-problem last night ;-)

Thanks to Rob, Pier (who thought I had a typo :-P ), Amy, Craig. I love
you guys like my dysfunctional extended family =)
