Both "erl" and "erlc" are scripts that call the corresponding 
executables depending on the command line switches.

I guess the best solution to this problem is that the "erlc" script 
should accept the same switches as "erl".  In particular, it should 
accept the "-smp" and "-hybrid" switches.

Let's hope that the OTP folks are kind enough to do this change.
