ant 1.6.2

I've wondered if it is due to the fact that once the properties file is
read into a Properties object, the order of any enumeration is not
guaranteed. Thus the code may process the java14compile.classpath before
j14lib, or something along those lines. Thus it may be dependent on the
contents of the properties file.
