Currently, as Peter Donald said, this can only be done on the highest level,
which makes it rather useless, but an additional ant task in the target,
<target name="A">
<ant target="B" dir="..\..\dependendlib">
should possibly do it also. No depend, but a forced build.

(note, for the configure task, when rescanning, the target name called
 not be the same as the current target; otherwise it will be deleted)
