Is there any way with java.awt.event.KeyEvent to distinguish between the Left Alt or Left Control being pressed and the Right Alt or Right Control being pressed?  If so, how can this be done?

No - because KeyEvent simply has no encoding for 'left alt' or 'right control.'    You can veify this for yourself by generating KeyEvents which use one or the other. You will see that (aside from the time) there is no difference between the events.
