I would prefer having an option that could be given to any task, rather
than just javac.  The reason I say this is because we have a mixed
environment, and use make to build our C code, but the make is called
from within ant.

Consequently, the output of the make commands have "[exec]" in front of
them, which is the same problem.

A suppressprefix="true" option (or something along those lines) for all
Tasks would be better.
