Fix ant to not delete the directory.
Moreover: DO NOT STORE BUILT FILES IN A VCS!
Anything that is built by your environment does not belong in the version
control (regardless of whether you use svn, cvs, vss, etc.pp). Any
Developer can rebuild that him-/herself.
While Java might be very forgiving with this behaviour any C++ Programmer
can tell you that even the slightest change in Compiler-Version or
LibC-Version changes your binaries completely.
This is the material for fantastic stories about debugging woes! You can
scare whole university classes senseless with that... ;-)
Besides: this wastes valuable memory and bandwidth on the VCS-Server.
