I'm not sure whether I understand what you want.

I assume you have src/a/b/c/ and classes/a/b/c/D.class. You want
to compile all files in src/a/b/c that are newer than their
corresponding .class files in classes/a/b/c/ - but you don't want to
set srcdir to src because the directory scanning takes too long.


The answer is, you can't, sorry. The best you could get is always
recompiling all files in src/a/b/c by setting the srcdir to this
directory and dest to classes.

The only good news I have to offer is that directory scanning for most
tasks will be a lot faster in Ant 1.2.
