Have you checked that the v3_life module is available?

There was a similar problem in a reltool generated release. The issue
was that the nodetool escript had a compile directive and the release
was missing modules in lib/compile/ebin. So, the compiler was
incomplete and unable to function. BTW, another common case where the
Erlang compiler is needed in a release are Yaws applications.
