is it correct to say that you want to find out if the target computer 
has erlang already installed? and if not, install base.tgz?

if erlang is already installed what would be the appropriate measure? 
for erlrt it could be to do install erlrt only, and inform erlrt about 
the location of the erlang installation (soft link?)
