I would like to exclude a transitive dependency in the classpath configuration of my buildscript closure. However, it doesn't seems to be taken into account. Gradle still tries to resolve the dependency.

This is my buildscript closure:

buildscript { 
    repositories { 

    dependencies { 
        classpath ... 
    configurations { 
        classpath { 
            exclude group: 'org.eclipse.jdt.core.compiler', module: 'ecj'

This works if you specify the exclude like:

configurations.classpath.exclude group: 'org.eclipse.jdt.core.compiler', module: 'ecj' 

There is no handler for a configurations {} block inside a buildscript {} block. I've raised GRADLE-1929 for this.
