I'm glad that it helped.

The problem is that kjc uses a different syntax for command line options 
than what ant expects, so it ends up confusing kjc. Please use 
build.compiler=kjc. It tells ant to use the option names required by kjc 
when it calls kjc.

You should also file a bug against ant's extJavac compiler binding: it 
should try to figure out what the external compiler is, and use the 
appropriate command line option conventions.
