yes, that is exactly what is happening. The content of java.class.path
is appended to the CLASSPATH that javac is invoked with.

Ant doesn't really see that you've specified this path outside the
build file and Ant now always interprets a relative path as being
relative to the project's basedir. Wherever it finds one.

Not using relative paths in your scripts that invoke Ant? 

I don't know whether this is an option for you. Maybe set an
environment variable that points to the directory containing the jar
files and use ${BASE}/javac.jar in the CLASSPATH?
