Yes, you should be able to build from the HEAD.  Check your .classpath 
file against the .classpath.default and be sure they match. If not, then 
  copy .classpath.default onto your .classpath file and refresh, being 
careful of course to not overwrite your local changes if any.  If you 
still get compile errors, then we probably need to update 
.classpath.default -- sometimes changes sneak in that we don't catch in 
the Eclipse files.  One recent change has been in the IOPort* classes, 
which were recently moved from Kepler's exp directory back into the 
Ptolemy tree -- this means that the previous exclusions for these files 
need to be removed from .classpath.  The updated .classpath.default 
should reflect this. If you are getting class not found errors for 
IOPort and related classes, this is probably the problem.
