Ant certainly will compile emuns with a 1.5 compiler...I do it all the time,
although I do not use the "modern" compiler argument.

That is the only thing I can think have to be running an earlier
compiler.  I don't think ant looks at JAVA_HOME, probably just
looks at your PATH.  Is there any way you could have an older compiler in
