Chronos wil build with rebar as it is right now - I tested that. Given 
the lack of a rebar.config file it will not grab gproc, but there is a 
reason for this.

I took out the rebar.config since I doubt I will ever have a specific 
version need for gproc, so instead of imposing a specific version or 
just run with the latest I wanted to make it clear that the user has to 
try things out and handle potential conflicting needs for gproc.

I had all the good intentions of clearly explaining this, but as you all 
know the road to hell is paved with good intentions...

I will provide a pseudo .rel file and an INSTALL file so that it becomes 
clear to people how to use Chronos.

Cheers,
Torben
