alex at alex-laptop:~/hg/riak$ ./rebar version
Version 1 built 20091217_142251

I'm using Ubuntu Karmic 9.10. I first installed Erlang from the Ubuntu
packages but it turns out that it requires version R13B03 of Erlang.
So I removed the Ubuntu package, downloaded Erlang's sources and
compiled it without too much fuss. Still, at the end of ./configure I
had some warning messages like a few features won't be built because I
don't have all the required dependencies. Although, I could still
built Erlang and have it running:

alex at alex-laptop:~/hg/riak$ erl
Erlang R13B03 (erts-5.7.4) [source] [smp:2:2] [rq:2] [async-threads:0]

Eshell V5.7.4  (abort with ^G)

I'll check in soon.
