Erlang on OS X

I have only recently discovered Erlang, thanks to my interest in 3D 
modelling and my wish to use Wings3D, which uses Erlang. Both Erlang 
and Wings3D seem to work fine on my setup (from minimal testing) with 
one slight problem. It takes almost 30 minutes for the program to start 
up.

I originally discovered this thanks to a phone call when trying to 
start up Wings3D.

I'm using an iMac DVSE (400MHz G3, 640Mb OS X 10.2.6)

When I run the Wings3D loader it hands off to beam, which then takes 
about 30 minutes to actually display anything on screen. I downloaded 
the precompiled version of Erlang/OTP and found that when I run erl 
from the terminal, it's a similar story. It seems to work, eventually.

Any help would be much appreciated.
