to answer my own question, and basically exclude this type of solution,
i think the reason it doesn't work is that ant runs the 'check' target
the first time, but then assumes that target is now _done_.  so the next
depends="check" is just silently skipped, as that target was already
executed.  is this right?  here is the output from this project:

Buildfile: build.xml

default1:

check:

target1:

target2:

default2:
     [echo] test2a

BUILD SUCCESSFUL

Total time: 0 seconds


cheers,
