[rabbitmq-discuss] RPM install not detectingErlang

If you built Erlang from source, by yourself, how do you expect the RPM
package manager to know it's there?

Either force the Rabbit install by telling RPM to ignore dependencies (and
this can be risky, since you can miss things and create a partially broken
install), or install an Erlang via RPM.
