The bootstrap scripts compile the classes twice, the first step uses
command line javac and classes compiled by this steps will be removed
after the process.  This step won't compile the JUnit task and support
classes BTW.

The second step is "the next call to build" - an invocation of Ant on
its own codebase, this one does not (well, didn't 8-) clean up the
classes directory and I'm not that sure that it should - passing
build.sysclasspath into this Ant invocation would give you the result
you need.

I'd prefer the later.
