Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-162) improve configure script's ability to find erl_driver.h

improve configure script's ability to find erl_driver.h

                 Key: COUCHDB-162
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build System
            Reporter: Adam Kocoloski
            Priority: Minor

Hi, if I configure and install Erlang with a custom --prefix=/path/to/erlang, CouchDB's configure
script finds `erl` and `erlc` from the environment, but it usually needs to be told about
the location or erl_driver.h:

./configure --with-erlang=/path/to/erlang/lib/erlang/usr/include

It'd be nice if the configure script could check that location automatically, e.g. determining
/path/to/erlang by stripping bin/erl off the path to `erl` that it found earlier.  

Alternatively, I think --with-erlang ought to be modified to take the path to the base of
the Erlang installation, rather than the exact path to the location of the folder containing
erl_driver.h.  Best,
