[Webtest] Execute a single

I am having some trouble getting webtest to execute one test (or one
testSuite). I would like to
do this while I am developing tests, rather than to have comment out rest of
the tests in my suite file.
My set up is as below:

In build.xml, the property wt.testInWork is set as below:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<project name="test" default="wt.full">

	<property name="webtest.home" value="/Users/qa/Canoo"/>

	<import file="definitions.xml" description="Import custom definitions (if
	<import file="${webtest.home}/webtest.xml" description="Import all
functionalities for a full build"/>
	<property name="wt.testInWork" value="tests/allTests.xml"/>	

The file tests/allTest.xml has information about various suite of tests that
I have as shown below:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<project default="test">
	<property file="../properties/english.properties"/>
	<target name="test" description="runs all the tests">
		<!-- ant dir="accounts" antfile="accountsSuite.xml"/-->
		<ant dir="sanity" antfile="sanitySuite.xml"/>


Finally, I have the test suite files in each of the directories which have
lists of tests that make up that particular test suite (sanitySuite.xml), as
shown below:

?xml version="1.0"?>
<project default="test">
	<target name="test" description="runs all the tests">
		<!--ant antfile="./Install.xml"/-->
		<ant antfile="./InitialLogin.xml"/>


As you can see, I have the accountsSuite.xml commented out in the
file and the Install.xml commented out in the sanitySuite.xml file, because
the only test
that I want to run is the InitialLogin.xml.

Could someone please point me out to how can I run any one test (or any one
testSuite) directly
rather than having to comment and uncomment in my various testSuite or
allTests build files.
Anytime I try to run the test directly, I start getting errors similar to
the one shown:

/Users/qa/Canoo/Sugar/tests/allTests.xml:11: The following error occurred
while executing this line:
/Users/qa/Canoo/Sugar/tests/accounts/accountsSuite.xml:5: The following
error occurred while executing this line:
/Users/qa/Canoo/Sugar/tests/accounts/SearchAccount.xml:5: Problem: failed to
create task or type webtest
Cause: The name is undefined.
Action: Check the spelling.
Action: Check that any custom tasks/types have been declared.
Action: Check that any <presetdef>/<macrodef> declarations have taken place.

I realize this may be more of an ant question, but I couldn't find anything
suitable on the
web while searching for this. Everything does run properly if I just execute
