If these are requirements, Sinan[1] (and erlware in general) might be
the tool for the job. It has some built-in functionality for building 
against different otp versions and is extensible. In addition, it uses
Faxien[2] (the erlware package manager) for dependency tracking.

Both of them have been designed to work in a corporate environment.
