I've been running IBM's JDK 1.3 on Linux for many months without ever
having any problems - it uses the modern compiler.

Right, it shouldn't - and I didn't have to do this.

I have ANT_HOME and JAVA_HOME set and a completely empty CLASSPATH, as
well as nothing in JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/ext.

Ant uses the system classloader when it searches for the compiler,
this cannot be the reason.
