Hi Glen,
    I may have been mistaken in my comments about using beta3 or the 
nightly build for compiling. :-(
The ptolemy source code is inside the build/kepler.jar file but the 
paths may not be set properly for compiling. [I tried it on my machine 
and thought it worked, but I forgot that I have other copies that the 
compile may have been using.]

    Let me look into this and get back to you.
