Yeah, the dependency stuff is the main reason I was interested in it. 
That and the ease of adding flags for specific operating systems while 
not affecting the others.

I did raise the issue over on the ant-contrib forums, but didn't get a 
response.  The issue seems to be that even when you say name="g++", it 
still compiles with "gcc".  I couldn't tell this for sure with the time 
I had, but I did make the observation that the output from <cc> was the 
same as when you forget to use g++ instead of gcc: you get missing 
libraries.  I might just end up hacking the code since it seems like 
people have raised similar bugs of this nature on their bug tracker but 
which never get attention from the actual developers.
