riak ubuntu 11 building problems

I can confirm building both erlang and riak from source on Ubuntu 11.10 

That is, everything builds without any complaints or editing config 
files, and then I'm able to add an object to a riak client.

wget http://erlang.org/download/otp_src_R14B03.tar.gz
tar xzvf otp_src_R14B03.tar.gz
cd otp_src_R14B03/
./configure && make && sudo make install

git clone https://github.com/basho/riak.git
cd riak/
git checkout 1.0.1-release
git fetch
git pull
make rel

Thanks all for the advice.
