More specifically, it crashes while building Erlang. There's a
complete build log at

  http://buildd.debian.org/fetch.php?&pkg=erlang&ver=1%3A9.1-2&arch=hppa&stamp=1052727248&file=log&as=raw

Here's where it goes wrong:

  === Entering application kernel
  make[4]: Entering directory `/build/buildd/erlang-9.1/lib/kernel/src'
  erlc -W  -bbeam  +debug_info -I../include  -o../ebin application.erl
  {"init terminating in do_boot",{'cannot load',erlang,get_file}}
  init terminating in do_boot ()
  make[4]: *** [../ebin/application.beam] Error 1
  make[4]: Leaving directory `/build/buildd/erlang-9.1/lib/kernel/src'

Also, Gerd Flaig reported a problem with Debian's package with R9C in
it. It doesn't happen if you compile R9C yourself. I have no idea
whether this has been fixed in debian. I'm not sure if the debian
maintainer is interested in bug reports without fixes.
