    Fix Version/s:     (was: 0.11)

> Erlang code path prefers older versions of CouchDB

>                 Key: COUCHDB-505
>                 URL:
>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.11
>         Environment: any system where different minor versions of CouchDB have been installed
to the same --prefix

> We're using ERL_LIBS to add PREFIX/lib/couchdb/erlang/lib to the code path on CouchDB
startup.  If multiple versions of CouchDB have been installed,  that directory might look
something like
> mochiweb-r97
> ibrowse-1.5.2
> couch-0.9.0
> couch-0.10.0a
> ...
> In this case, we want the system to use beams from couch-0.10.0a, but apparently Erlang's
code loader sorts couch-0.9.0 higher.  
> One solution would be to fall back to explicitly adding specific app directories to the
code path using -pa.
> An elegant solution would be to make sure that our app directories are named in such
a way that they automatically sort correctly in the code loader.  I'm not sure this is really
possible, though, particularly when a user is installing development versions built from source
next to released versions.
