Hi Rudolph and who else has the problem,

I ran into the same problem first with 10.2 and then with 10.3 ... by now I have dumped Apple's felines in favour of Yellow Dog :-P but I expect that this will be feasible for 10.4 too:
- get the current version of the gcc suite from Apple (free download, though you have to register)
- get the Erlang source code package
- unpack it (via command line tools -- NOT StuffIt, that won't work!)
- start the usual .configure/make/sudo make install dance
- come back a few hours later and enjoy
That did it, at least for me.
Hope that helps!
