Erlang port? R10B-3 on OpenBSD 3.7

I noticed that the Erlan port is hopelessly out of date for OpenBSD.
I've been using erlang on OpenBSD and I have a working installation
of Erlang R10B-3 on OpenBSD 3.7 (beta) March 10, 2005.

I'd like to volunteer to turn this into a port that can go into the 
ports tree.

 THERE ISN'T a vmunix file on OpenBSD so this test will fail!
 I have added a TARGET for OpenBSD.
