[erlang-questions] Problem building an OTP release

I'm trying to put together an OTP release and have run into a snag.  
I've got what I think is a valid .rel file (attached to this mail) and  
am using systools to generate the release tarball. After I copy  
the .rel file and tarball into my releases directory I call  
release_handler:unpack_release/1 to unapck the release so I can  
install it.

When I call release_handler:unpack_release/1 I get this error message:


where 'vertebra' is the name of my release. And sure enough, when I  
look in the tarball itself I see that the .rel file is iin releases/  
not /release/0.1. I'd appreciate any pointers on what I might be doing  
wrong.  FWIW, this is on OS X 10.5.4 with R12-B3.
