Which means you have a different default than the script that ships
with the non-RPM distributions.

The canonical way to say "I want jikes" is 

ant -Dbuild.compiler=jikes

and for a more permanent solution


in ~/.antrc we shouldn't add a third way IMHO.

BTW, why does jikes get this special treatment by your RPMs (I'm
curious)?  This is not the only open source compiler supported by Ant,
but you only check for jikes, not gcj nor Kopi.
