No, you can do that with vanilla Ant 1.2.

<target name="build-and-define-task">
  <javac dest="wherever-you-want-to-place-your-task" .../>
  <taskdef ...>
      <pathelement location="wherever-you-want-to-place-your-task" />

And all targets that use your new task will need to depend on
build-and-define-task of course.
