I don't regularly use the ANTLR task; however I am a
member of the Ant development team.  Your usage here
looks like the examples in the manual, as far as I can
tell.  You should:

1) verify ANTLR can process your grammar from the
command line.
2) run ant with the -v argument for verbose logging to
see if that sheds any light.
3) run ant with the -d argument for debug logging, if
verbose logging didn't give more information.  There
is not much debug-level logging in the ANTLR task, but
in case your problem lies elsewhere in your build file
it might be useful.  Be prepared for a mountain of
logging in this case.
