ant is OSS and only some minors classes couldn't be compiled,
I've got it loaded on my Eclipse IDE and only weblogic, vaj,
starteam and jdk 1.4 dependant stuffs couldn't be built.

I want to build ant from source just to make sure that
ant core is really rebuilt from source.

There is the following existing rpms at or for :

activation / jaf
jaxm (xml-api)
mail (javamail)
xalan1 (xml compat)

miss the following packages :

ejb => Sun stuff should be nosrc ;[
jdepend => who could do it ?
netrexxc => who could do it ?
xslp (1.1) => who could do it ?

stuff for vaj, weblogic, starteam could be build with Jon' 

for jdk 1.4 support, I'll just need to build against JDK 1.4
instead of jikes or IBM SDK 1.3.1
