Hello Kent,

Done!  I also loaded the openssl development package.  I now have
Erlang R9B-0 running on SuSE Linux 8.1 (kernel 2.4.19).  Thanks for
your help.

I would like to suggest a change in Makefile.in, to make it easier to
have several Erlang releases installed at the same time:

Add

  DISTRIBUTION = R9B-0

Replace

  ERLANG_LIBDIR     = $(INSTALL_PREFIX)@libdir@/erlang
  ERLANG_ILIBDIR    = @libdir@/erlang

by

  ERLANG_LIBDIR     = $(INSTALL_PREFIX)@libdir@/erlang_$(DISTRIBUTION)
  ERLANG_ILIBDIR    = @libdir@/erlang_$(DISTRIBUTION)

Best Regards,
Roger
