I forgot to say that another way is to create a debian package with only the beam files  that depends to another debian package installing the good Erlang VM for Ubuntu. 
This imply to build it on Ubuntu or use ubuntu 's Erlang VM in official repositories,  but they are probably not up-to-date with last Erlang VM.

Recently we needed to deploy it on a remote system that runs Ubuntu. The developers used a tool called alien to convert the .rpm that installs the release tarball into a .deb package that Ubuntu expects.
