No, the javac that comes with J2SE 1.3.

It must be the way that Ant invokes the compiler through the interface.  There must be some other setup that
happens that allows standard extensions to be visible when running
javac directly.  I just can't figure out what it might be.

You mean don't use the standard extensions feature of Java?  That
means managing a long classpath either in my build.xml files or in my
environment.  Blech.

Still, thanks for your help.
