What if the first XXX files all depend on the rest of the files? javac
will pick up all sources it needs to compile your first chunk,
possible all 598 of them.

As longs as Ant doesn't do real dependency checking - which I wouldn't
want to be enabled by default anyway - the only thing to do is
breaking the sources to compile into independent chunks yourself by
using more than one <javac> task.
