[erlang-questions] Building erlang from git on a vanilla linux system...

Hi folks,

I'm trying to build erlang from source on a Baserock system, which as 
far as possible has 'normal' gcc, autotools etc.

Config happens fine, but the build fails at SMTP as follows, both with 
default autotools and using ./otp_build autoconf script.

Any ideas how to fix this, please?
