If a package.json file has devDependencies but not dependencies then %nodejs_symlink_deps --check will fail because it won't create the node_modules directory which means the subsequent link creation operations will fail.
Huh? AFAICT `%nodejs_symlink_deps --check` should completely no-op if there is no 'dependencies' key in package.json; everything it does was guarded with an if based on that. It shouldn't have even tried to create any symlinks Were you getting a Python traceback? It might be indicative of another problem.
At any rate, I'll fix it not to no-op on the devDependencies case.
Yes you're quite right about the details - that's what I get for diagnosing bugs later at night... The basic problem, that it doesn't work for a package that only has devDependencies remains however.
Cool, just wanted to make sure there wasn't another bug somewhere before I pushed builds. A fixed version is building now.
