If you can use thirdparty libraries you can use the AntXtra's
<assign> task like so:

<target name="compile" depends="-init" description="Compile stuff">
  <assign var="time" value="now"/>
  ...[all your compiling tasks here]
  <assign var="time" value="-now" transform="duration"
  <echo level="info" message="compile took ${compile.duration}"/>

If you want to do this for lots of your targets you can leverage
macrodefs to do this for every target using something like:

<macrodef name="timedtarget">
  <attribute name="name">
  <attribute name="functions"/>
    <assign var="time_" value="now"/>
    <callinline targets="@{functions}"/> <!--do NOT switch projects-->
    <assign var="time_" value="-now" transform="duration"
    <echo level="info" message="@{name} took ${@{name}.duration}"/>

Then use it like so:

<target name="-compile">
   ...[all your compiling work here in private target]

<target name="compile" depends="-init" description="Compile stuff">
  <timetarget name="compile" functions="-compile"/>

AntXtras is at:

Hope that helps.
