#37357: erlang: make binary distributable
 Reporter:  ciserlohn@…  |      Owner:  bfulgham@…
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal       |  Milestone:
Component:  ports        |    Version:  2.1.2
 Keywords:  haspatch     |       Port:  erlang
 Erlang is currently not distributable in binary form:
 $ ./port_binary_distributable.tcl -v erlang
 dependency 'gdbm' has license 'GPL-3+' which conflicts with license 'MPL'
 from 'erlang'
 gdbm is a dependency of perl wich is only needed at build time. Using the
 'license_noconflict' (see the attached patch) keyword erlang would be
 $ ./port_binary_distributable.tcl -v erlang
 erlang is distributabl
 Or, as mentioned here http://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail/macports-
 dev/2012-December/021280.html the dependency on perl could be dropped
