What style files are you using, your own or standard ones? I recently  
submitted something through the system with no trouble; the start of  
my main tex file was:


\usepackage{amsmath, graphicx}

I didn't include any other style files or packages. I did have to  
upload the elsart3p file with my submission, which I thought was  
strange. I didn't have to upload amsmath or graphicx, though.

Does the build system give you an error message? Is it a tex error
