I am trying to build riak from the git repository

$ git clone git://
$ cd riak
$ git branch 1.1 origin/1.1
$ git checkout 1.1
$ make rel
"Makefile", line 164: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 166: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 168: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 215: Need an operator
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

$ erl -v
Erlang R14B04 (erts-5.8.5) [source] [64-bit] [smp:8:8] [rq:8]
[async-threads:0] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false]

Eshell V5.8.5  (abort with ^G)

any ideas?


%>>> "".join( [ {'*':'@','^':'.'}.get(c,None) or
chr(97+(ord(c)-83)%26) for c in ",adym,*)&uzq^zqf" ] )
