The classic compiler is the javac of JDK 1.1 and 1.2. You need to have (JDK 1.1) or tools.jar (JDK 1.2+) in your CLASSPATH for
Ant to find it - and you need a JDK, not a JRE of course.

Ant is usually smart enough to include the required archive - if
you've set JAVA_HOME.

BTW, I've sucessfully bootstrapped Ant with each of the three JDKs you
cite (JDK 1.1 is Blackdown's of course) and the release candidate
build as well as the 1.1 release build have been put together on my
Linux box using IBM's JDK 1.3. It works, believe me 8-).
