OK, after rereading the source:

(1) If you set the includeantruntime attribute of javac to false, it
won't use the CLASSPATH environment variable at all.

(2) If you set includeantruntime to true (the default), any classpath
you've specified via the classpath attribute/nested element or
classpathref attribute will come before the CLASSPATH environment.

To make things more complicated, there is a magic build.sysclasspath
property that affects the case (2), see
for details.
