Update:

Whether or not I have 'use bytes;' in erts/emulator/utils/make_preload
I get the error

/usr/bin/perl utils/make_preload -old
/usr/local/share/erlang/otp_src_R9B-0/lib/kernel/ebin/otp_ring0.beam

make[2]: *** [i686-pc-linux-gnu/preload.c] Error 255

when making.

The number 158299248 is so much bigger than 1192 that some integer
overflow seems to be occuring (Well, I really have no idea, but...)
