The following is adapted from xml-fop/build.xml:

   <project default="codegen" basedir=".">

     <target name="codegen" depends="prepare">

       <compileTask srcdir="lib" destdir="lib">
         <taskdef name="xslt" classname="Xslt" />
       </compileTask>

       <xslt infile="${Courier.xml}"
             xsltfile="${fontfile.xsl}"
             outfile="${build.src}/fonts/Courier.java"
             smart="yes" />

     </target>

   </project>

Note: I am no longer in favor of this approach.  I prefer Stefan's:

   <project default="codegen" basedir=".">

     <target name="codegen" depends="">

       <javac srcdir="lib" destdir="lib" />
       <taskdef name="xslt" classname="Xslt" />

       <xslt infile="${Courier.xml}"
             xsltfile="${fontfile.xsl}"
             outfile="${build.src}/fonts/Courier.java"
             smart="yes" />

     </target>

   </project>

And I like Matt's even better (mildly):

   <project default="codegen" basedir=".">

     <javac srcdir="lib" destdir="lib" />
     <taskdef name="xslt" classname="Xslt" />

     <target name="codegen" depends="">

       <xslt infile="${Courier.xml}"
             xsltfile="${fontfile.xsl}"
             outfile="${build.src}/fonts/Courier.java"
             smart="yes" />

     </target>

   </project>

If the consensus is on Stefan's approach, the best way to implement this is
to revert to a DOM based appoach (through JAXP this time), but simply
configuring the tasks from the XML in a just in time manner.
