I've run into this too.  I don't think this needs to be documented, I think it 
needs to be *fixed* -- that is, the relevant ant tasks need to not assume these 
directories exist and create them if not.

Subject: GIT does not support empty directories

There are some empty directories in the Solr source tree, both in 1.4
and the trunk.


Git does not support empty directories:


And so, when you check out from the Apache GIT repository, these empty
directories do not appear and 'ant example' and 'ant run-example'
fail. There is no 'how to use the solr git stuff' wiki page; that
seems like the right place to document this. I'm not git-smart enough
to write that page.
