I'm having this very same issue, and I appreciate the help so far.  I've made
the changes you suggest, it's just the last couple steps of the install that
I think I'm still missing...

when I change the above export and then type the ejabberdctl command, I get: 

# ./ejabberdctl register admin chatserver admin
RPC failed on the node ejabberd at localhost: {'EXIT',

The exact steps I'm taking are: as root, launch installer for 1.1.4.  After
the installer has the install error, change the export above in the
ejabberdctl file.  Then run the above command line.

I've also noticed that the ejabberd.cfg file in the /etc/ejabberd directory
is also missing the host name.  I wasn't sure if that's taken into account
with the above instructions or not.  

To answer your prior question, my unames are :
#uname -m
#uname -a
Linux chatserver 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp #1 SMP Mon Sep 25 17:24:31 EDT 2006
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I'd really appreciate any help.
