Actually myfaces does not alter anything...

Ok I am doing a wild guessing here, maybe you have to add an el resolver 
entry for weld, I assume weld/cdi comes from the container and since 
myfaces is hosted in your ear, some kind of auto configuration which 
otherwise would be picked up is not in this case, due to the 
classloading order and different jar locations.

It might either resolve itself by adding weld to your application as 
dependency or even better try to locate the el resolver entry and add it 
to your faces-config.xml
