I have four prebuilt ERTS for centos 32/64 and debian 32/64. ERTS were
configured with --disable-dynamic-ssl-lib  --without-termcap
 flags and built on centos 5.8 and debian 6 They are still compatible with
the latest versions of Centos/Ubuntu/Debian, which are used on 99% of
commercial hosts. Some library apps which I don't need are stripped as
well. Then ERTS together with my app is packed into deb and rpm packages.
All paths' and environment variables are hardcoded in startup scripts. This
saves me from a lot of headche, as I have a lot of small customers without
admins at all.

If you have inhouse app this would be very different of course.
