Yup, that's the ancient way of integrating Jikes.  James Duncan Davidson -- 
original author of Ant and ex-coworker of mine -- checked that code in back in 
January, 2000 when he imported all of the Ant sources to cvs.apache.org.  The 
<javac> task likely didn't originally have support for Jikes, and was later 
refactored to support it "natively" (via the build.compiler property).  ;-)
