It will work in 1.3 with a little help from the additional
includeantruntime and includejavaruntime attributes.

This is only half of the story.  Ant will add the CLASSPATH it has
been invoked with to the classpath you've specified at the javac task
- it will even prepend it to the explicitly specified one.

If you don't want the CLASSPATH in the mix, use Ant 1.3 and set
includeantruntime to false.
