I assume you've copied the jars to $ANT_HOME/lib, $HOME/.ant/lib or a
directory added via the -lib command line switch.  Any such jar ends up
on the same classloader that is used to load Ant itself.

One explanation would be that one of the jars you've added for Selenium
actually contains Ant 1.6.5 and this jar is lodaded prior to ant.jar.
Locate the offending jar (by looking into them, they are ZIP files after
all) and either try without that jar or stripping out Ant's classes from
that jar.
