Subject Re: (lack of) couchdb windows binaries

I tend to agree with you on this. If, for example, you look at Eclipse you can see it's capable
of using multiple versions of Java that might be installed on the same box. Many installers
bundle their own JRE precisely to insure they get things right. However, the current level
of Erlang and CouchDB I'd go with the latter approach for now. It sounds like you have larger
fish to fry still.

says "The installers contain all the libraries and dependencies needed to run ejabberd" and
indeed, a copy of the erlang runtime and binaries are installed directly in the ejabberd directory
- ie, it appears to not offer installing into an already installed erlang binary distribution
