It is included in the source distribution, under lib/edoc/doc.

The default location for the overview file _is_ in the application doc
directory. Actually, if you read section 1.4 "The overview page" in the
edoc user guide, I think it answers all your questions so far:
http://www.erlang.org/doc/apps/edoc/chapter.html#1.4

(And if you follow the link to the edoc_doclet module, you'll see
the {overview,Filename} option described.)
