[erlang-questions] Building C code in dep with rebar3: c_src not found

 Hi,

 Is this a directory with a set of apps in it or is this an umbrella?
(i.e., you have a top level rebar.config). AFAIK there's only two ways
you can have local dependencies like this... in an umbrella or using
checkout dependencies.

Either way could you share the rebar config for project B? In some loose
form that is.

 I just made an umbrella using rebar3 and could not replicate the issue.
Note that in an umbrella I must be top level when running rebar3
compile, etc.
