Thanks everybody for the help.

A suggestion to the doc writers -- it turns out the documentation for 
the javac task is pretty good, but the problem is that I never found 
it.  Scanning the table of contents, I interpreted "Ant Tasks" as an 
advanced chapter on defining your own tasks, so I didn't delve into 
that part of the manual.  I spent most of my time in "Using Ant / 
Writing a Simple Buildfile", and was perplexed when the example given 
didn't show how to compile java files.

Changing the name of the "Ant Tasks" chapter to something like 
"Predefined Ant Tasks" might have caused me to look there.
