 Log Message:
 Update devel/apache-ant to 1.8.0
 Fix PR pkg/42990
 * Lexically scoped local properties, i.e. properties that are only defined
   inside a target, sequential block or similar environment.
 * <import> can now import from any file- or URL-providing resource - this
   includes <javaresource>.
 * Various improvements to the directory scanning code that help with symbolic
   link cycles (as can be found on MacOS X Java installations for example) and
   improve scanning performance. For big directory trees the improvement is
 * The way developers can extend Ant's property expansion algorithm has been
   rewritten (breaking the older API) to be easier to use and be more powerful.
   a new top level element extension-point allows build files to be extended
   with custom targets more easily
 * At the same time the if and unless attributes have been rewritten to do the
   expected thing if applied to a property expansion (i.e. if="${foo}" will mean
   "yes, do it" if ${foo} expands to true, in Ant 1.7.1 it would mean "no"
   unless a property named "true" existed). This adds "testing conditions" as a
   new use-case to property expansion.
 * Ant now requires Java 1.4 or later
 * new task include provides an alternative to <import> that should be preferred
   when you don't want to override any targets
 * numerous bug fixes and improvements as documented in Bugzilla and in WHATSNEW
