   well, by OTP_ROOT being "sane" I mean that the erl script is here;

$OTP_ROOT/bin/erl

   and the libs here;

$OTP_ROOT/lib/erlang/lib/os_mon-<vers>

   on my debian it means OTP_ROOT should be /usr (i was wrong earlier).

   it seems this conflicts with the "Embedded Systems User's Guide"... what is 
the correct (tm) definition?
