Although the ptolemy install requires the files in the tree you 
describe, there is no reason it has to be so complex in the kepler tree, 
because the build can copy the files to the right locations in the 
ptolemy tree when installing.  Thus, I like Efrat's suggestion that we 
use a simpler directory structure:

$KEPLER/configs/spa    copied to   $PTII/ptolemy/configs/spa
$KEPLER/configs/kepler copied to   $PTII/ptolemy/configs/kepler

Would this work?  The extra directories in the kepler CVSreally do seem
