Package: nodejs
Version: 0.6.19~dfsg1-5
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I'm porting Debian on illumos kernel and using GNU toolchain (GCC, binutils,

Node.js' build system sucks so much that cannot detect features of the compiler
and the linker.  Instead it tests the platform.

It assumes, that on "sunos" linker always exports all dynamic symbols. It is
true for sunos linker, but not for GNU ld - the latter need --export-dynamic,
or -rdynamic option to GCC.

Another issue is that Node.js' build system passes -threads options to the
compiler. GCC does not support it.

I believe Debian on any kernel will use GNU tools, thus these patches can be
adopted by Node.js package.
