One thing you may have forgotten to mention is the nodejs package also needs to be installed. (Unless there is a configure option to leave it out?)

yes, I forgot! thanks for reporting!
it will actually become a mandatory build dependency with firefox-64.x, in the meantime you can disable it passing the configure option "--disable-nodejs"
