I am trying to compile jvarkit:

@BioPower2 ~/programs/jvarkit/htsjdk $ ls /home/adrian/.ant/lib
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 15:23:13
@BioPower2 ~/programs/jvarkit/htsjdk $ ant -lib /home/adrian/.ant/lib/
Buildfile: build.xml


/home/adrian/programs/jvarkit/htsjdk/build.xml:68: Problem: failed to create task or type propertyfile
Cause: the class was not found.
        This looks like one of Ant's optional components.
Action: Check that the appropriate optional JAR exists in
        -a directory added on the command line with the -lib argument

Do not panic, this is a common problem.
The commonest cause is a missing JAR.

This is not a bug; it is a configuration problem

Total time: 0 seconds

It doesn't seem to matter how I point to that file, it just doesn't seem to want to take it. Even if I -lib /home/adrian/.ant/lib/ant-nodeps-1.7.1.jar

Apache Ant version 1.7.1 compiled on August 24 2010

I am running CentOS 6.

Anyone have any ideas? I even tried a more recent package of ant from apache, 1.9.4, but there is no nodeps file for it and there is still error.

True that it is your tool, however I saw many posts about ant in other places and though this was something common and not specific to your tool. Alright, posted!
