Yup, you're correct.  Packaging that's path/position independent
requires more packaging mucking than I was willing to endure, and, as
you've pointed out, the packaging is different for Windows (which I
don't use regularly).

I don't know what the Wings3D folks do for packaging the Erlang runtime,
but it might be worth taking a peek; most of its installations use the
Windows platform, IIRC.
