[erlang-questions] problems with PropEr includes from eunit

This is a combined bug in rebar and PropEr as far as I can see. See my 
entry on the rebar mailing list:

http://lists.basho.com/pipermail/rebar_lists.basho.com/2011-June/000888.html

PropEr relies on the source if the beam file cannot be found (it can't 
when it's cover compiled), and it doesn't seem to know about ERL_LIBS or 
the include paths used. Especially since rebar copies the source file to 
the .eunit folder, it's harder for PropEr to detect linked source files.

You might want to reply on the rebar mailing list to get some traction 
for fixing the problem.

Cheers,
Adam
