This is indeed the problem with erlang installation, but I don't think
I can help you a lot because:

1) I'm not aware of RH based distros
2) ejabberd is too old and I don't even remember how ASN.1
compilation was done there, e.g. there might be versions mismatch
between ejabberd and Erlang

I would really recommend installing ejabberd 17.04 and Erlang 19.x
