I'd recommend 1 unless it is particularly difficult to do.

Erlang is fairly easy to embed on other OSes, for example, RabbitMQ now has a standalone
OS X version that requires no Erlang runtime installation. Riak has been doing the same
for a while for all OSes they support.

So you may get a much more in depth answer on the Erlang mailing list.
And, quite a few folks there are aware of RabbitMQ ;)
