"javac" is not a valid value for this property, see the documentation
of the <javac> task for the values Ant knows how to deal with (you
want to set it to "modern" or "classic" - or not set it at all).

If build.compiler is set to a value Ant doesn't recognize, this one is
taken to be the name of a class (implementing CompilerAdapter) - as
Ant doesn't know "javac" it tries to load a class named "javac", and
obviously fails to find it.
