Thats nice. I need dependencies for building jars too. 

As a makeshift you can use the -verbose output of the jikes 
compiler. You have to adapt the Javac class of Ant to write this 
output in a separate file. Then use a modified replace task (this 
task works with regexps with help of the Regexp subproject of 
jakarta) to filter all unnecessary information and you got a list of 
files which may be the content of the jar. 

That's a hack that I use at the moment. A special depend task like 
above mentioned would be much better. I will look for it (at first I 
have to check if my build process will work with Ant 1.2 and my 
modified classes, maybe it is better to base of the last builds of
