I'm trying to get jspc working in my build script in the same 
environment your working in. Maybe we can trade some information. I'm 
looking for a decent examle for using jspc to deploy compiled jsp pages 
for my webapp. If you could show how your currently configuring jspc in 
your build, I'll share anything I find out about getting it to update 
jsp-java file appropriately along the way.

One note I can tell you right now, I've used ant to deploy our cvs tree 
into the webapps directory via "copy", I noticed that if I'm copying 
files from a src directory to a deployment directory with 
tomcat(probibly jasper as well), it doesn't recognize the file updates 
as well.  This might suggest some sensitivity with jasper and file 
lastModified times. I usually end up wiping the work directory.

Sometimes I think the copy task is not replacing the destination file 
with the new copy, sometimes I think the dates are not changing, I'm not 
sure though. I take a similar strategy where I'm overwriting the entire 

        <copy todir="${deploy.home}" overwrite="true">
            <fileset dir="../../VDC"/>
