I'm trying to use kaffe jdk in my java developments, but found
several problems when using ant to build projects:

1- I need to invoke ant with "-Dbuild.compiler=extJavac" 
option. Else doesn't ever run

optionally can use compiler="extJavac" in javac task to get it
working. ¿Is this normal or a bug?

2- Take a look at these build.xml extract:
   <target name="compile" depends="init"
      description="Compile the java code">
    <javac srcdir="${src}" destdir="${build}" compiler="extJavac">
        <classpath refid="project.class.path"/>
    <!-- here comes some non-relevant items

when invoked "ant -v compile" just get this message:

    [javac] Kjc: invalid option -- :
Compile failed; see the compiler error output for details.
   at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.Javac.compile (Javac.java:844)

   at org.apache.tools.ant.Main.start (Main.java:196)
   at org.apache.tools.ant.Main.main (Main.java:235)
Total time: 2 seconds

Of course, it works fine on Sun's JDK

What am i doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
