1. figure out which erlang (if there's more than one installed) you're using
result: path_to_erlang_binary

2. rpm -qf path_to_erlang_binary
result: rpm_package or error

If that binary does not match what you're using, either you've
configured to use another erlang install, or it wasn't installed as an
rpm package.

If you have more than one erlang install available, query the
rpm db for each.

I don't have access to an rpm based distro, so I didn't verify
rpm -qf works, but it did the last time I used it.
