Not much luck with Riak 0.7.1 on CentOS 5.4

Hi Mårten,

I missed a step in my instructions below.  Here's the proper order of
operations:

% rm -Rf rel/riak
% make clean all
% make rel
% cd rel/riak
% bin/riak console (or bin/riak start to launch in the background - you can
run bin/riak attach later to get an Erlang console)

Sorry 'bout that.

- Andy
