It should normally be supported. Sun JDK 1.1.x seems not to support that
flag either. (And it does for me)

Are you sure you are running Ant with the IBM VM and there is nothing from a
newer VM on the Classpath? Ant 1.3 only includes -sourcepath if the Java
version it detects is not 1.1. Try to run your build with -verbose and have
a look at the line "Detected Java Version".
