AFAIK, google code distel works with any combination of Erlang
R9-R13 and Gnu Emacs 19-23 + some versions of XEmacs. Most of the
user base is pretty bleeding edge, so it's pretty much guaranteed to
work with the current and upcoming releases (right now Erlang
R12-R13 and Emacs 22-23.)

erlang.el from erlware;
