Just in case it was not 100% clear from Happi's reply, the recommended
way to build a HiPE-enabled Erlang/OTP system is to do:
("make hlib" is a shortcut added just for the convenience of HiPE developers
to compile only the lib/hipe subdirectory. Unless one decides to modify
a file in that subdirectory, not recommeded btw, there is no reason to use
the "make hlib" shortcut).
