I noticed that nodejs 6.12.0 fails to build on mips and mipsel:

https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=nodejs&arch=mips&ver=6.12.0%7Edfsg-2&stamp=1511795079&raw=0
https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=nodejs&arch=mips&ver=6.12.0%7Edfsg-2&stamp=1510704638&raw=0
https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=nodejs&arch=mipsel&ver=6.12.0%7Edfsg-2&stamp=1510706722&raw=0

searching for "not ok", it turns out that all three tests fail here:
https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/collab-maint/nodejs.git/tree/test/parallel/test-zlib.js?h=debian/6.12.0_dfsg-1#n153

That test is still present in upstream master branch today:
https://github.com/nodejs/node/blob/master/test/parallel/test-zlib.js#L175

I don't know why it fails, but I also noticed that currently upstream does not 
provide binaries for mips:
https://nodejs.org/dist/v8.9.1/
that perhaps indicates it's not so well tested there ?

Probably we should just skip that test ?
