True.  I meant this:

  <target name="build-features" depends="init">
    <makeFeatureJar project-name="uimaj-eclipse-feature-deployeditor"
	<makeFeatureJar project-name="uimaj-eclipse-feature-runtime"
    <makeFeatureJar project-name="uimaj-eclipse-feature-tools"

The uimaj-eclipse-feature-deployeditor is not there, so the
build-features target fails.
