    Affects: users of lang/erlang-lite
      The lang/erlang-lite port uses the same default options as
      lang/erlang, which were changed some time ago.
      The couchdb, rabbitmq, freeswitch-core and freeswitch-core-devel
      ports have been updated to use lang/erlang rather than lang/erlang-lite.
      Please check that your lang/erlang options are configured as you
      wish (especially X11 support), then follow the instructions below
      to update your dependencies.
      # portmaster -o lang/erlang lang/erlang-lite
      # portupgrade -fo lang/erlang erlang-lite

Remove the lang/erlang-lite port, which is now redundant as it
specifies the same set of options as lang/erlang's defaults.

Dependent ports were fixed in r302574.

Add lang/erlang-lite, a meta-port to lang/erlang that installs it without X11,
JAVA and ODBC, reducing a log dependencies.
