[platform-help-dev] Stand Alone Help Instructions


Hi,

I have another question regarding the stand alone help documentation.  When I try building a stand alone system using only the plug-ins described in http://dev.eclipse.org/help21/topic/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/reference/misc/help_standalone.html I get error messges in the workspace\.metadata\.log file such as:

Copying the org.apache.ant and org.eclipse.ant.core plug-ins to my plugins directory resolves the problem, but these two plug-ins are not listed in the web page above.  Is the document out of date, or am I doing something wrong?
I am building my help system in a separate directory by copying the listed files, along with the eclipse binary and startup.jar, using an ant build script.  I am working with the M1 build from the fullmoon.raleigh.ibm.com download site.

Any insights would be appreciated.
