No. Jikes compiles everything you tell it. As far as Ant is concerned it
only passed files to jikes which Ant finds to be modified and need to be
recompiled. It's up to the compiler and beyond the control of Ant what it is
doing with the arguments passed and which files it really compiles.

Normally this means: "yes", Ant tries to do an inremetial compilation. The
result is up to the compiler.
