I encountered an odd problem installing Riak on Linux Mint 12, which may also hit users on other Linux distros. Part way through building Riak I got the error message:

ERROR: Unable to generate spec: read file info /usr/lib/erlang/man/man1/precat.1 failed

The solution found here: after some Google searches was to do the following:

cd /usr/lib/erlang/man/man1
rm precat.1
ln -s precat.1.gz precat.1

You may need to be a superuser or use sudo. I had to do this with a couple of different man page files.
