[erlang-questions] systools:make_tar/2 fails because of {filename, join, [[]]}

Hi Nikola!

A workaround for the problem is to give the path as "./ebin" instead of just
"ebin".

The root cause is here:

35> file:path_open(["ebin"],"a.app",[read]).
{ok,<0.189.0>,"ebin/a.app"}

36> file:path_open(["./ebin"],"a.app",[read]).
{ok,<0.191.0>,"./ebin/a.app"}

The last element of the returned tuple is used for setting #application.dir
("ebin" vs "./ebin") - later on systools_make:appDir/1 tries to find the
parent directory of this... and that's where it fails.

I'll try to get a solution into R14B04.
Regards
/siri
