OK, I tried this. After make uninstall, the main things turned up by find

* /usr/local/lib/couchdb/erlang/lib/ibrowse-1.4.1/ebin  -- .app and .beam
* /usr/local/lib/couchdb/erlang/lib/couch-0.XX.0aXXXXXX -- lots of files

I first blew away /usr/local/lib/couchdb/erlang/lib/ibrowse-1.4.1/ebin and
reinstalled, no difference.

So I then did:

  make uninstall
  rm -rf /usr/local/lib/couchdb
  make install

and hey presto, it's working again!

So that seems to be the magic needed. Thanks for pointing me in the right

Clearly, something in the change to the startup scripts made it sensitive
to these extra files.
