I guess I should have mentioned I build the target systems with sinan (

'sinan dist' with {include_erts, true}. set in sinan.config builds a tar.gz
with erts included. I've found it to be the easiest tool, with the least
hassle to handle projects of many applications and building a release of
all those applications and their dependencies by default.
