This may not be the best forum for this, but how can you force erlang
to compile in 32bit? The configuration line:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/couchdb/apache-couchdb-0.9.0/erlang-32bit/
--enable-64bit-libs=no --disable-64bit --disable-m64-build

produces this (after make, etc..)

bash-3.00$ ./erl
Erlang R13B01 (erts-5.7.2) [source] [64-bit] [smp:8:8] [rq:8]
[async-threads:0] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false]
