Strange, $CLASSPATH should work.  $CLASSPATH is handled specially,

I'm not sure why it would not be working unless there was a partial
merge where the version of FileParameter that predates the CLASSPATH

    ok, I got the head of the ptolemy cvs to work with kepler. This is what 
    I did:
    -add TextAttribute.java to the makefile in 
    -remake that directory
    -change line 87 of 
    ptII/ptolemy/vergil/kernel/attributes/ImageAttribute.java to be 
    (instead of "$CLASSPATH/doc/....")
    -remake that directory.
    -change line 87 of 
    to <property name="source" 
    (again instead of "$CLASSPATH/doc....")
    hope that works for you.  if it does, maybe forward this info onto the 
    ptolemy folks.  It looks like someone just inadvertantly stuck in 
    $CLASSPATH when it should have been $PTII.
