Maybe it is a good idea to split into erlang and erlang-dev, maybe
not, but when there are no fresh packages for months and it still
requires some knowledge hidden inside one person to build a package,
everything ends in ./configure && make && make install on production
server.

I tried to build R14B for squeeze, but failed: too complex build setup
required. If situation doesn't change, I will have to refuse from
building debian package because of no erlang in debian or ubuntu.
