I installed tcl/tk 4.84 and rebuilt the OpenBSD erlang package.
I now get a little further, but still no joy.
The error message follows:
2/home/daf}cd Erl/code
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.5.5 [source] [64-bit] [async-threads:0] [kernel-poll:false]

Eshell V5.5.5  (abort with ^G)

** exited: {undef,[{shell_default,ii,[]},
                   {shell,eval_loop,3}]} **

=ERROR REPORT==== 25-Nov-2007::13:02:35 ===
Error in process <0.32.0> with exit value: {undef,[{shell_default,ii,[]},{erl_eval,do_apply,5},{shell,exprs,6},{shell,eval_loop,3}]}

Is Java required to build/run Erlang?
