------- Additional Comments From bodewig@apache.org  2005-03-14 10:39 -------
Ant's bootstrap script requires a greedy compiler, i.e. one that decides to compile
more source files than specified.  Sun's javac and jikes are examples of
greedy compilers, gcj or Kopi are not.

Since support for non-greedy compilers would require us to modify the bootstrap
script too often - and we'd probably forget to do it since nobody of us committers
uses a non-greedy compiler on a regular basis, I'd settle for document the fact
and mark this as WONTFIX.

This is the primary reason that the Kaffe build on Gump 
http://brutus.apache.org/gump/kaffe/ uses Jikes instead of gcj or kjc.
