Perhaps...

What version of Erlang are you using? And what operating system? I'd
be willing to guess at NetBSD :)

I have not yet seen that problem, but when you do 'make rel' you are
building a separate erlang-installation in rel/etorrent. It may be
that it thinks it needs gs there, but won't copy it to there. When I
generate the release here, I do get the gs application into the
release, because the tv application needs it (among others IIRC).

Perhaps you can try something like:

5> :~/Projects/etorrent/rel/etorrent/lib$ erl
Erlang R14B02 (erts-5.8.3) [source] [64-bit] [smp:2:2] [rq:2]
[async-threads:0] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false]

Eshell V5.8.3  (abort with ^G)
1> code:which(gs).
"/usr/local/stow/otp-dev-20101208/lib/erlang/lib/gs-1.5.13/ebin/gs.beam"

to see if your erlang-installation is able to find it first. It may be
a release handling problem for the older R13 release, so I'd be
interested in hearing more.
