Ant will tell you how many files it is going to compile. If it still
says compiling 106 files in your second run your setup is not like Ant
expects it to be.

Given <javac srcdir="src" destdir="dest" /> if Ant finds a file
src/a/b/ it expects it to be in package a.b so that the
resulting .class file is going to be dest/a/b/C.class. If your setup
is different Ant's heuristic won't work (we don't want to open every
source file to see which package it belongs to) and it will recompile
classes that are up to date.
