I have actually experienced the same as you on the same environment. I
didn't install from the trunk, but from the repositories.

What I did was install couchdb with apt-get install couchdb, and when
I installed erlang this problem came up.

So, I think it has to do with the version of the erlang interpreter,
because as soon as I removed it, couchdb was running again.

I haven't really played much with couchdb, but it was nice you raised
this issue as I am using the same environment as you and I will start
playing with couchdb soon.

If you happen to find out the real cause, please report back your experience.

Regards,

Fidel.
