I'm not sure about the problem that Mark has encountered, but one issue we
definitely have
with the erlang grade on Windows is that the values of
contains spaces if the OTP is installed in the default location (in Program
Files).  This breaks compilation of
the standard library. We should take the basename of the value returned by
the configuration tests in this case,
as we do for the Java tools in the same situation  (I'll commit a
change that does this tomorrow.)
