Hi Ean,

ant uses Sun's javac unless told otherwise. You have
to pass it a build.compiler property (either in the
build.xml file of the project you intend to build, or
via command line) to make it use a different compiler.
build.compiler=kjc lets you use kaffe's kjc,
build.compiler=jikes is for jikes. There might be
other compiler options for gcj.
