   Hi!  I last looked at it about a year ago (which is a very long time 
in my world ;)) so the specifics are very fuzzy.  I believe there was a 
dependency on a biggish package that was either Linux-only or x86-only. 
Would it have been Node.js?

   Thinking about it some more, yes I believe it was Node.js. 
Apparently Node.js isn't quite portable enough to run on SPARC.
