Thanks David,

FWIW, I personally use MacPorts to install the dependencies for erlang
then install erlang and rabbitmq manually in a custom location. A
cheats way to get all erlang dependencies installed with a minimum of
pain is:

sudo port install erlang
sudo port uninstall erlang

This will leave all the dependencies installed, but remove erlang R14
itself to avoid confusion.
