I don't believe this is correct (that they are duplicates).

Bug6019 complains because the ant jars pull in the XML parser
Bug8794 complains because the ant jars do not pull in the XML parser

The latter arose because we changed from Crimson to Xerces whilst the 
former really would only be solved by not including any of the XML 
related jars in the manifest's classpath attribute.

Actually I too think Ant's manifest should not include the particular 
XML jars that come bundled with Ant. Ant does not depend directly on the 
particular parser it is bundled with - it just requires a JAXP capable 
parser. Too late to change now, I guess, so 6019 should be marked as a 
WONTFIX for backward compatability reasons.
