Ah, wonderful!  When the build failed I suspected I needed to fix 
something in node-underscore, and from your patches I can see that I 
simply made the silly error of including the wrong package.  Nice!

That should be easy to catch (and thanks for saving me a roundtrip!).  
Issue is that Nodejs modules are assumed to be installed in the home 
directory - system-wide path is a Debian "speciality".  So any time a 
module walks the file system to get to other modules, we need to patch 
it to walk differently.
