If you download libraries.tar.gz you should unpack it at the top
level, i.e. in the erlang-4.7.4 directory. If you, on the other hand,
download a single library, e.g., mnesia-3.6.tar.gz, then you should
unpack it in the libraries directory.
In other words, there should not be a libraries subdirectory to
the libraries directory.
