[erlang-questions] Non-Erlang dependencies

In the past, I've added bootstrap as a GIT Submodule and I simply
included it in the release.
This approach didn't work out too well (submodules can be painful).
In the end, I've decided to go for the simple route and to add the
bootstrap files to the repo.
A bit of duplication there, but a lot of simplicity.

@dva: Having a bash script which gets and builds stuff assumes that
you have (Internet) access to the resources you have to build at
building time. Sometimes, that's not the case.
