Stylistically it is slightly preferred to write $(ERLC).
That way the user can override the setting at make time, as needed.

Just make it _DATA:

    data_DATA = netaccess.beam

Having a way to just list the sources and let automake guess what
should be installed as been on the to-do list for a long time.
