The only way to do this is by resetting srcdir to an empty string.
That's the technique <compilewithwalls> and others (including me) have
used in the past.

That way, Javac will compile *only* the file explicitly given to it,
and never implicitly compile files the explicitly given classes depend
on (which will lead to compile failures if the depend classes aren't
found via the classpath).

AFAIK, <javac> will accept several nested <fileset>s, so that's how
you include source files from several directories (but remember to
scrdir=""). --DD
