You need to install the "erlang-R14B-02.1.el5" package, not just the
erlang sub-packages.  For compatbility reasons, our RPMs still depend on
"erlang", which only the erlang package satisfies.  After the erlang RPM
was broken out, the erlang package became simply a stub which pulls in
all the sub-packages.  But you still need to install it.
