Thanks for the tip, I am using 4.1.9.

This page:
doesn't list the "config" install option.

Also, it's not clear to me why there isn't a "config" option for the
deploy task as well as install. At least, that's what the code for the
ant tasks would imply...deploy is not documented in the javadoc for
ManagerServlet. I can enter these things into the bug db if they're
new issues.
