Re: lang/elixir | v1.13.3

For us the difference is that the runtime does not come erl or the erlang compiler. We run a custom developed app written in Elixir but there are some erlang modules as well, recompiling said app requires the files found in the "erland24" pot but not in "erlang-runtime24". I Hope that makes things a bit clearer. Basically the way the non -devel elixir port works.

Hi Mike, 
there is no difference (other than OTP version) between: 
lang/erlang *is* erlang-runtime24 atm. 
Or do you mean, you need erlang-wx, java etc as well? 
You can re-target the port with ERLANG_VER= ... something else, or 
modify the post-patch target not to be version-specific. 
The reason for this apparent hack is that OTP24 compiled beam files 
are not compatible with OTP21 beam file opcodes any more. So we 
need to make sure that people who want JIT-enhanced OTP run with 
the OTP release that we built against, and that people like me 
who run multiple erlang-derived apps, each embed the path internally.
