Subject: RE: Compilation Error when building Tomcat

Hi Craig,

I am really sorry for taking up too many of your resources on this, but i just cant figure
out how to get tomcat to build. 
I used the release version of tomcat source and i think it gets build upto dist-static and
then it gives the following error, i think in target dist-prepare,



C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0-rc1-src\webapps\tomcat-docs\build.xml:84: Class org.apache
.tools.ant.taskdefs.XSLTProcess doesn't support the nested "param" element

So i downloaded the latest source from the nightly builds but after updating
when i try to run ant -projecthelp i get following error

C:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.0>ant -projecthelp
Searching for build.xml ...
Buildfile: C:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.0\build.xml


C:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.0\build.xml:239: Class
Zip doesn't support the nested "zipfileset" element

Total time: 1 second

Could you please help me figure out the problem,
Thanks for your help.

See the "BUILDING.txt" file in the top level source directory of Tomcat.
It tells you exactly where to get everything (including getting the latest
Servlet and JSP classes from the "jakarta-servletapi1-4" repository).
