Of course after being stuck on this for a couple hours, I answered the 
first two questions just a few minutes after posting: the 
erlang-runtime24 dependency was getting installed via normal FreeBSD 
package source, rather than my poudriere built version. So it was a 
version mismatch between the build dependency and run dependency.

I still don’t understand why I need an erlang runtime at all though, 
after the mix release has been built.
