Subject: [erlang-patches] Solved emacs erlang-mode load Error "File mode
specification error:"

Release version : latest x64, otp_win64_R16B03.

When first opening an .erl file, you get the error "File mode specification
error:" if you use the latest x64 version of Erlang.
And the erlang-mode with syntax hi-lighting fails to load on first try.

Error: unnecessary font dependency in erlang.el

Solution: Line 1067 - 1077 in http://core.st/erlang/erlang.el

The fixed file:
complete fix + all files for Emacs / Xemacs
