RabbitMQ 3.4.1 and rabbitmqctl "cannot get bootfile" error

If you are running RabbitMQ v. 3.4.1 and your are experiencing the following error when running rabbitmqctl:

{"init terminating in do_boot",{'cannot get bootfile','/Users/pintux/devtools/rabbitmq_server-3.4.1/sbin/../erts-6.1/bin/../../bin/start.boot'}}

Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump
init terminating in do_boot ()

then, below is a workaround, waiting for a new version that fixes it.
RabbitMQ installation directory assumed to be /Users/myuser/rabbitmq-3.4.1

cd /Users/myuser/rabbitmq-3.4.1
mkdir bin
cd bin
ln -s /Users/myuser/rabbitmq-3.4.1/releases/3.4.1/start.boot .
