Upgrade the default Joyent Smart Machine Node Image 1.3.3 to using node 0.8.16 (I don't like the newest 1.4.0 image since it doesn't come with out-of-the box push to a git repo and deploy)
#!/usr/bin/env bash
pkgin -f update
pkgin install gcc-compiler
mkdir src
cd src
curl -O
gtar -xpf node-v0.8.16.tar.gz
cd node-v0.8.16
./configure --with-dtrace --prefix=/opt/nodejs/v0.8.16/
gmake install
rm /home/node/local/nodejs
ln -s /opt/nodejs/v0.8.16/ /home/node/local/nodejs
# Optional: install GraphicsMagick
pkgin in GraphicsMagick
pkgin in logrotate
