No, it's not case sensitive. (The command itself is case sensitive, but Ant
always uses "jikes").

If it's an IOException telling that it can't execute jikes you should extend
your Path to include the directory where jikes lives. You can test this by
simply entering "jikes" on the command line. If it tells you "command not
found" Ant can't execute jikes either.
