Ant dependency less forgiving than javac 1.4

           Summary: Ant dependency less forgiving than javac 1.4
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: eric.armstrong@sun.com


For class a.b.c, specifying  <javac srcdir="./src/a/b/c ...>" compiles
just fine, creating the proper class hierarchy in the output directory.

However, the dependency checker is not as forgiving, so all of the 
classes are recompiled on every invocation of ant compile.

This is as much pilot error, as anything. But since javac was forgiving,
it made the cause of the problem difficult to identify.

Interestingly, javadoc *also* fails with that path, issuing "class
or directory not found".

Either javac could do less forgiving, or ant and javadoc could be
more...
