Comment (by ryandesign@…):

 On my normal root MacPorts installation, I get:

 npm WARN cannot run in wd npm at 2.11.3 node bin/npm-cli.js prune --prefix=.
 --no-global && rimraf test/*/*/node_modules && make -j4 doc

 I don't know why it cannot run the command on my system but does attempt
 to do so on your system, but I also don't know why the npm build wants to
 run the command at all. Certainly, it would not be right to try to run the
 `rimraf` command when that command does not exist. (`rimraf` is a cross-
 platform implementation of `rm -rf`.) This command line appears in npm's
 package.json in the `prepublish` key. We're just asking to install npm,
 not publish anything, so I don't understand why a prepublish step is being
 run, but maybe I don't know what npm means by "publish". In any case, it
 sounds like a mistake in the npm build system, which you should report to
 the developers of npm.
