I've never used it myself, but this is what the manual suggests.  If
x.jar is your unsigned jar and y.jar is the signed version, something
like <signjar jar="x.jar" signedjar="y.jar"/> will not do anything
unless x.jar is newer than y.jar.

Take a look at <uptodate>.  Using that, you can set a property if
everything is already built.  Put the conditional stuff into targets
that test for this property in their unless attribute.
