[erlang-questions] Problem compiling under CentOS 5

I've been trying to compile R12B3 under CentOS 5, and compilation aborts at
the following point:

Now, this was already reported by someone else at
http://www.erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-questions/2008-July/036345.html

The response there(*) was to install the krb5-devel package, but I already
had that installed.

So I did some poking around. The keyctl_* functions appear to be in
-lkeyutils, but that's not present in the linker command line shown above.
(Also note: the keyutils-libs-devel package contains
/usr/lib/libkeyutils.so but no .a file)

'freecon' appears to be in -lselinux. If you add that you get further errors
about functions like 'sepol_policy_kern_vers_max' and
'sepol_policy_file_create' which are in -lsepol.

I already had keyutils-libs-devel and libselinux-devel packages installed,
so to allow to compile to complete I made a manual frig to
lib/ssl/c_src/i686-pc-linux-gnu/Makefile:

After that compilation completed successfully. Presumably some autoconf
magic is required to fix this problem properly.

Brian Candler.

(*) The other response on the list was to use the pre-built EPEL5 R11B
package instead. However I was trying to install R12, because I was trying
get erlyweb to run with its prebuilt .beam files. When I try it on another
system where I have R11B5 installed (Ubuntu Hardy) I get the following
error:

  beam/beam_load.c(1301): Error loading module erlyweb:
    use of opcode 136; this emulator supports only up to 129

My best guess from this error is that I need a newer version of erlang.

Now I could just recompile erlyweb under R11B5. When I first tried that,
erlang itself dumped core:

$ make
sh make.sh
{"init terminating in do_boot",{undef,[{erltl,compile,["src/erlyweb/erlyweb_view.et",[{outdir,"ebin"},debug_info,show_errors,show_warnings]]},{filelib,fold_files2,6},{filelib,fold_files2,6},{erl_eval,do_apply,5},{init,start_it,1},{init,start_em,1}]}}

I had already built yaws, and I had symlinked /usr/lib/erlang/lib/yaws-1.77
to /usr/local/lib/yaws where yaws installed itself (under there are ebin,
examples, include, priv directories). However erlyweb was still unable to
find yaws_api.hrl. Whether that should cause a core dump I don't know.

Sticking some absolute paths in src/erlyweb/yaws_arg.erl and
src/erlyweb/yaws_headers.erl seemed to fix it. I clearly have a lot to learn
about this environment :-)

However, making R12B3 compile under CentOS seems to be a useful aim in its
own right, so I posted anyway.
