Hi Glen,
    I looked into you problem and discovered that several of the ant 
'target' scripts need to be modified to compile using the beta3 release 
or the nightly build zipped version. (A primary problem is that the 
$KEPLER/build/kepler.jar file is not automatically added to the 
classpath and thus the compiler will not find ptolemy classes.)
    I suggest that you get Kepler CVS read permissions if you do not 
have them and work wtih CVS releases rather than the beta3 release. This 
will put you on the same status as developers and make it easier for 
developers to help if problems occur.
