npm install zmq fails during cf push


av V
 

Steps to reproduce:
1.) Create an empty folder.
2.) Add this package.json file.

{
"name": "zmq-test",
"version": "1.0.0",
"description": "",
"main": "index.js",
"scripts": {
"start": "node index.js"
},
"author": "",
"license": "",
"dependencies": {
"zmq": "2.8.0"
},
"engines": {
"node": "0.10.33"
}
}
3.) Add this index.js file.

var zmq = require('zmq');
var http = require('http');

http.createServer(function (req, res) {
res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
for (var env in process.env) {
res.write(env + '=' + process.env[env] + '\n');
}
res.end();
}).listen(process.env.PORT || 3000);
4.) Run npm install. That should build the library locally.
5.) Push the application to a CF

When the application starts, I get the below error
Prebuild detected (node_modules already exists)

npm ERR! Make sure you have the latest version of node.js and npm installed.
npm ERR! If you do, this is most likely a problem with the zmq package,
npm ERR! not with npm itself.
npm ERR! Tell the author that this fails on your system:
npm ERR! node-gyp rebuild
npm ERR! You can get information on how to open an issue for this project with:
npm ERR! npm bugs zmq
npm ERR! Or if that isn't available, you can get their info via:
npm ERR! npm owner ls zmq
npm ERR! There is likely additional logging output above.
