Installing node on ArchLinux has some trickery to it because Arch uses python to reference python 3 by default. Node uses python 2 during installation so we can update our system to reflect this.
Make sure system has python 2 installed. As superuser do:
Install nodejs from repository
**At this point I attempted a command but encountered an error. I don’t think this actually did anything but I want to record it.
Modify the makefile to use python2
