I agree that the error message is not very helpful.

The md5 is built from the abstract code which is generated when the 
compile option +debug_info is given. My guess is that the erlsom files 
are built without this option. If you want to include the erlsom in the 
analysis it needs to compiled with +debug_info anyway, not just to 
compute the md5.
