I don't think the symlink is even necessary, and is probably a bad idea
in case the other package providing node was installed.  instead, ship
the binary in /usr/lib/nodejs/node (or similar), and instruct users that
if they need "upstream compatibility", to simply 

	export PATH=/usr/lib/nodejs:$PATH

and problem solved, right?
