I've patched the mapnik-*.js executables to not require node-pre-gyp,
that just leaves lib/mapnik.js which uses it to find mapnik_settings.js.

Since its path differs between the build environment and after
installation, I'm not sure if we can make it support both without

I think I'll leave the node-mapnik packaging as it is for now, add have
another look when node-pre-gyp is available or if it becomes clear we
can work around it.

Kind Regards,
