In Ant, the tasks decide whether they need to run or not - all tasks
that are part of the dependency chain will be executed by Ant.  In
your case the <jar> compares the timestamp of the archive with those
of the files that make up the archive and decides to do nothing.

The <signjar> task doesn't know whether it needs to run or not - I'm
not familiar enough with it to know whether it could gather this
information or not.
