How would I combine a path and a property to make a new property?

I don't see where you're defining build.classes, but if it's the output
dir where your classes get built into, then you shouldn't need to include
it in your <path>, since the directory specified in the "destdir" attr is
automatically included in the classpath for the compiles.

But to answer the question more generally: You can define your <path>
without the dir-based-on-date, then have a target that runs <tstamp>, sets
a property based on a refid to your defined <path>, then sets a property
that combines that property with the path to your dir-based-on-date. Then,
when you need to specify that classpath, reference that property, rather
than the path id.
