I got same problem for libcommons-logging-java. Now I checked jikes code:


    6227     case JikesOption::SDK1_3:
    6228         major_version = 47;
    6229         minor_version = 0;
    6230         break;
    6231     case JikesOption::SDK1_4:
    6232     case JikesOption::SDK1_4_2:
    6233         major_version = 48;
    6234         minor_version = 0;

$ jikes -help
-source release     interpret source by Java SDK release rules
                      [default to max(target, 1.4)]

We may avoid the problem to use this option. I don't test yet but ant
seems support this option too.
