Ok when I say production I mean it's a development environment controlled by some one else and not the virtualbox and vmware servers I have root access to, but I get and agree with your point although I'm not sure how I package up the three components into a rpm/tar I have built!

However I'd still like to understand what this error means and how to resolve it, so if any one has any ideas on how to do this they would be greatly appreciated

Try to avoid erlang compilation on production servers. You can use systools to make a self contained tarball with your application at dev node  .

I'm trying to build Erlang R15B01 on Centos 5.8. I have done this twice before as a root user on two other servers with out issue. However on this production server I have to use sudo and when I run sudo make I get the following error:

Any one have any ideas of why I'm getting the above? I've googled and the main work around's seem to be trying different released of Erlang, which as I have already proved it cane b installed on Centos 5.8 I'd rather not have to go back and downgrade my other servers.
