Well, I want to install it on linux server which is at a hosting 
company, so I have ssh and ftp access but no GUI.
this is fine for ./configure  and make for the ejabberd itself, but I 
was asking about the mysql odbc module with is a separate download from 
svn and it has 4 .erl files, one Makefile.in and one mysql.hrl
the instruction mentions only where to copy the .beam files, I suppose 
after they have been build, but I need to know exactly how to build 
them, I mean do I just run 'make' (there is no configure script)
or do I need to use some sort of ERlang specific compiler?
