Rebar relies on reltool and riak relies on both for building
a rel(ease). The built release will have an embedded erts and
does not use any system-wide erts at all when you run riak.

So you can just copy a riak release over to a system with
or without any Erlang version.

You only need to make sure that the erts used when building
a riak release will run on the target distro/server.

Does this help?
