Great - thanks!

Someone, recently, opened up a similar ticket to this in macports (for the
erlang version error) and it was closed as fixed. So, I assumed that this wasn't
the error (bad assumption). I guess the same problem happened again more
recently - doesn't macports allow for build/runtime dependencies against
specific versions?

BTW this was super annoying to debug - could I have, somehow, attached an erl
terminal to couchdb to see what was going on?
