Wierd. 

"Thrown when an application tries to use the Java new construct to instantiate
an abstract class or an interface.

Normally, this error is caught by the compiler; this error can only occur at run
time if the definition of a class has incompatibly changed. "

This is a linkage error of some form or other. I would hypothesise that
somewhere on your classpath you have an old copy of ant.jar, an incompatible
copy of ant.sh, or the like

1. what is CLASSPATH?

2. set the env variable ant_exec_debug , run ant and see whats get printed.
