I certainly wouldn't call myself a guru, but I find Ant's dependency 
checking through the optional "depend" task to be much better than 
javac's dependency checking, the latter being the most common way to 
get dependency checking via make files. I've seen references to 
something seemingly related called JDepend, but I don't know what this 
is.
