I think in this case it is probably a FreeBSD issue, had the same problem
myself.  If you look at /usr/ports/lang/erlang/Makefile you will see a few
blocks of the form ".if !defined(WITHOUT_JAVA) " (or X11, ODBC etc)
	From memory I managed to compile the port without java by setting
the WITHOUT_JAVA environment variable eg setenv WITHOUT_JAVA true
