     The src dist is setup to use ant for building.
There is a build script (build.bat or build.sh) that will bootstrap
ant.  If you _just_ want to compile:

% build compile

To run squiggle (the svg browser) and show anne:

% build squiggle samples/batikLogo.svg

     You would have to change the build.xml file to adjust what
is built.  In general I don't think this is worth while, Ant
will generally only rebuild what needs rebuilding (it's dependencies
aren't very deep so sometimes it get's it wrong), and even on my
not so fast laptop a total rebuild takes less than 3 min (which
might be a shock from someone comming from a C/C++ world).
