Well, the build-ejb-jar target or at least line 56 would probably be helpful...

Given the context (building an EJB jar for distribution), I'm guessing
it's doing something that expects to find an EJB deployment descriptor
in the META-INF subdirectory of your EJB sources and isn't even
finding that directory, much less the DD.  What J2EE version are you
developing for?  Do you actually have a deployment descriptor?  Does
C:\Users\i\workspace\RREJB\ejb\META-INF exist, and if not, does the
error message change if you create an empty directory of that name?
Are you able to run the script successfully outside of Eclipse with a
standalone Ant installation?
