Nope. But you could capture the logging output, then run a couple of shell
commands to grab any errors -- eg:

  grep -q -s "Compile failed" ant.log && \
    awk '/\[javac\].*\.java:[0-9]+:/,/\[javac\] [0-9]+ errors/' ant.log

Or you could do it as a <script> task if you need to be
platform-independent (sorry, feeling a little too lazy to do that example
:)  I think I remember someone recently submitting a new mail task that
lets you get the body of the message from a file (check the archives), so
put the pulled errors out to a file (if there are some), use <available>
to check for the file, then conditionally execute the mail task to send
the errors file based on whether the file exists, then delete the errors

('course, there could be some Java listener-thingy way of doing it as well
-- but I'm feeling way too lazy to look into all that :)

Hope this at least helps some,
