Those "eacces" do sound superficially interesting but they are not. What's happening here is
that erlang is searching for beam files in the current working directory first, and then the
paths where couchdb is actually installed. This is a side-effect of how couchdb is currently
started (i.e, in a non-standard way). The cwd is unreadable and so you get these false alarms.
A future release will package couchdb as an 'erlang release' which will not search cwd for

runit is a daemon management tool, akin to upstart. It may or may not be the same as node.js'
