I managed to solve this issue by simply commenting out the re-definition of 'debug' and the two instances of usage of ?debug in hipe_icode_type.erl. 

Maybe this is a machine specific issue but I would be happy to help diagnose if anyone should choose to follow up.

Thanks to all who replied, your help is truly appreciated.
