What is cool in Ermake is that you can develop the to build the target 
directly in Erlang. You can also use some Erlang functions to detect where 
Erlang has been installed, to help you detect the os, etc.  
I have a modified version of ermake where I added some helper functions to 
replace the sed type substitution, with some complete examples of how to write 
an Ermake file that make it possible to compile an Erlang code on several 
platform. 
 
Unfortunately the work is still in progress, but you will find an example as 
attachement and the work in progress ermake_lib file that is need to use it. 
You are welcome to improve this file. 
 
I hope to release a version 3.0 of ermake soon as a packaged new version. 
 
I hope this will help promoting the Erlang platform on Windows by helping the 
generation of multiplatform "makefile". 
I hoping to get time to convert the makefile for BTT (Open Source source bug 
tracker are a nightmare to install except this one=> I hope the makefile will 
make it attractive on windows),and yaws.
