Firefox doesn't ship NodeJS itself, it comes with its own Javascript engine,
so we wouldn't be shipping NodeJS twice.

NetBSD has already prepared a patch to address this issue. If I understand
the NetBSD developer correctly whom I talked to, there is apparently currently
just one Javascript file for which NodeJS is actually used during the build.
