Initial version for a build.xml for terrier. Two issues with this version are noted:

<!-- todo: directory name from tar is not terrier or ${final.name} -->
<!-- todo: windows .zip distribution -->

Finally, resolved for 3.0. We've only been talking about it for 6 years.

I should say that Ant 1.7 is required. It may be possible to port to an older version.
