My checklist is:
couch user has r/w to the equivalent of:

Hi Mike,

I'd rather we find a way to help you through this, the above approach is sure
to crap out on you in future in some subtle but critical fashion.

My guess is that your configure is really building against a different
than what you are actually expecting.

Can you post the output from below, & resulting config.log somewhere?

    ./configure --with-erlang=/usr/local/lib/erlang/erts-5.7.5/include

NB the --with-js-trunk shouldn't be used unless you know what you are doing, it
bypasses the checks that the js you are building against is actually compatible
with couchdb.

If you point me to a suitable ISO I'll whip up a centos and take a look also.
