Recent versions of Emacs have copied a fantasy regexp, purporting to match
this, from the ant site.  Like a few other regexps in there, it doesnt' work
as
advertised.

Since the end of last year I have developed a new compilation mode for Emacs. 
It is more robust and matches a lot more than before -- including ant output. 
If you have a CVS Emacs only a few months old, get it from

http://dapfy.bei.t-online.de/compile.el

and to get an idea of what this will match

http://dapfy.bei.t-online.de/compilation.txt

best regards
Daniel
