For others reading along (because I learned on irc that Praveen wants to 
continue maintain the wrong approach):

It is bad and wrong and unsurprising it falls apart to try to "build" 
vendor/autoprefixer.js - as its path clearly indicates, that is 
convenience code copy from a _different_ upstream project.

Source package is node-autoprefixer, not ruby-autoprefixer-rails. Proper 
thing to do is to have node-autoprefixer build not only targeted Node.js 
but also targeted browsers, and then have ruby-autoprefixer-rails 
symlink and depend on that.

...as has been pointed out numerous times already for those ruby 
packages embedding JavaScript!
