You can't always get away with this.  If two classes depend on
each other, you can't compile either one first; they both have to
be compiled together.

You might be interested in javadeps, a Java dependency
figure-out-er.  It can generate Makefile fragments; presumably it
could be hacked to generate build.xml fragments instead.  I don't
recall where it comes from; you'll have to do a search (also
search for "jdeps", as it sometimes goes by that abbreviated
