Changing directory structure in copy

Changing directory structure in copy

I have the following build.xml:

<project name="test" default="test" basedir=".">
   <target name="test">
       <delete dir="test"/>
       <mkdir dir="test"/>
       <copy todir="test">
           <fileset dir=".">
               <include name="*/db/**"/>
           </fileset>
           <mapper type="glob"
               from="*/db"
               to="dbutil/*"/>
       </copy>
   </target>
</project>

When I run it, the directories are copied and the names of the
directories are modified, but the files under those directories aren't
copied over.

I tried the following (using extra asterisks) in the mapper:

           <mapper type="glob"
               from="*/db/*"
               to="dbutil/*/*"/>

But, then it doesn't copy the directories. Any ideas?
