[erlang-questions] Using the half-word emulator with the erlang-solutions ubuntu package

The page on the erlang-solutions website says that the packages support the
half-word emulator:
"These have included HiPE enabled, 32 and 64 bit configurations, alongside
the half-word emulator"

I see [hipe] when starting the shell so half-word is probably not enabled.
I'm not using hipe so there is no problem disabling it.

Do I need to set a flag when installing the deb package?
Do I need to use a flag when starting erlang or creating a release with
rebar in the vm.args?

Are there reasons not to use half-word besides the 4GB process memory limit?
