Installation of Node.js

Build Node.js by running the following commands:

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0/pkgconfig \
    ./configure --prefix=/usr                  \
                --shared-cares                 \
                --shared-openssl               \
                --shared-zlib                  \
                --with-intl=system-icu         &&
make

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install &&
ln -sf node /usr/share/doc/node-8.6.0

Command Explanations

--with-intl=system-icu: use the system version of icu. Other values are full-icu (to build a local, full icu library) and small-icu (to to build a local, minimal icu library).

--shared-{cares,openssl,zlib}: use the system installed libraries instead of local copies.

--without-npm: do not build npm (use if you'd like to build a separate npm later).

--shared-{http-parser,libuv}: use the system installed libraries instead of local copies.
