Not much luck with Riak 0.7.1 on CentOS 5.4

I just downloaded Riak 0.7.1 in order to try out a three-node cluster.
Everything built successfully. But running proved to be all other than

1) Problem with .ez archives

When I ran "riak start" I got a whole slew of:
** Bad path can't read

After som googling, first finding out what .ez is etc. I took a chance
and manually unzipped all .ez archives, keeping any unzipped
directories already in place - thus merging their content with the
contents from the .ez-archive. This got rid of the "Bad path" problem.

After the above, the current state is that riak crashes directly upon
start, see attached log file.

Environment is CentOS 5.4 on x86_64.
I've killed all left-behind processes and cleaned the dets and ring
directories between each run.
