Unfortunately it's not possible right now. It is by design that Erlang VM will look into %{_libdir}/erlang/ directory (which is arch-dependent) for its modules at startup. Yes, it's possible to add another search paths, but it will require massive amount of work and testing.

Done! Not sure how could I miss this.
