The short answer is do it yourself, although that shouldn't be too 
frightening. This is talked about here:


FTR we took rabbitmq-multi out because:

* It did not handle the case where a broker wants to open other ports
   than 5672, and thus was not compatible with SSL, STOMP, the
   management plugin etc.
* It didn't actually set up a cluster, just a set of nodes.
* It had a couple of minor bugs in it that would not be easy to fix.
* It was another thing to document, and confuse people with.
* Its original purpose (help start a local cluster to work around poor
   SMP performance in Erlang) was obsolete.

Cheers, Simon
