Hello. I am trying to get the Ant fileproperties task to work, but I keep getting the error "Could not create task or type of type: propertyfile. Ant could not find the task or a class this task relies upon." I know it's something wrong with my classpath, but can't figure it out. Here's my configuration:

JDK 1.5.0_07 installed to /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_07
Ant 1.6.5 installed to usr/local/apache-ant-1.6.5 $ANT_HOME=/usr/local/apache-ant-1.6.5

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<project name="nat" default="build">
<target name="build">
<propertyfile file="my.properties" comment="My properties">
<entry key="akey" value="avalue"/>

I've tried adding $ANT_HOME/lib to my CLASSPATH, but it didn't help. This is all on SUSE 10.1. The optional task lib ant-nodeps.jar (which I think is the right jar for the fileproperties task) is present in $ANT_HOME/lib.

Any suggestions anyone might have would be greatly appreciated!
