There isn't.  Sort order of <fileset>s is completely undefined (and
highly OS and JVM dependent).

To achieve what you want, don't use <barchtest> but write a TestSuite
of your own that contains the tests in the order you want to run them
- and then use <test> to run this TestSuite.

Note 2: don't write tests that depend on the order of execution, write
your tests to be independent. 8-)
