thanks for the good, fast, catch steve! I had (conveniently :) forgotten about
the greedy/non-greedy compiler issues, that would crop up. :(

Of course, there is another (enhancement-grade) fix: let's make the Depend task
compute the dependencies that need to be rebuilt, and pass them to the compiler.

On the other hand, different versions of compilers may have different dependency
resolution algorithms (I believe I recall Jikes switched around a bit in the
early years), and that could lead to non-replicable support calls as well, if
the 'ant computed' and 'my compiler does this' dependency graphs don't match :(

So, I am still a bit uncertain how to make ant work well out of the box in the
'best' way, without causing you headache with moving entry points and similar
nonsense. Is the 'pre-set build.compiler' approach reasonable? In particular as
Kaffe is likely to switch compilers around some more in the future (possibly
back to kjc for generics, and then possibly to gcjx for more generics, and
better gcj integration).

cheers,
