node.core is an empty file. This happens regardless of whether MPROTECT is enabled.

pkgsrc-users thread:

I was pointed to this thread after noticing the problem and posting about it in #pkgsrc, so apparently I'm not the only one. npm package also seems to be missing from bulk builds going as far back as I can find.

yarn also segfaults when it's actually used with node.js 10.
Attempt to build lang/npm.
Use lang/nodejs8 instead.
