Well, OpenBSD to this day still ships with erlang_base-47.4.0 in the ports
collection. It has been quite a while since I built the port (just grab the
source, patch, and build that for current goodies), but last time I tried
it compiled and seemed to work just fine. You can probably find it as a
built package on some OpenBSD CD (I can check mine when I get home tonight).
Of course the source itself comes straight from the erlang site (unless it
has been removed).
Hope that helps.
