"Overriding previous definition of reference " ... should I worry?

Hello all.

I have a build file with a set of patternsets that are declared in
alphabetical order.  There are some references between then (eg: A
references B, but A is declared first).

Because of these dependencies and their order, I'm getting warning
messages from ant, things like:
 Overriding previous definition of reference to dependee
Should I be worried?


As an example, I have a build file where the referrer is declared
before it's dependency is declared:
 <project basedir="." default="compile" name="example">
   <patternset id="depender">
     <patternset refid="dependee" />
   </patternset>
   <patternset id="dependee">
   </patternset>
   <target name="compile" >
     <echo>doing nothing</echo>
   </target>
 </project>
This produces the following output:
 Overriding previous definition of reference to dependee

 compile:
      [echo] doing nothing

 BUILD SUCCESSFUL
 Total time: 1 second

Should I be concerned with this override?


Thanks

JDG
