That's what I do for rapydscript-ng. If you try to npm install in
build() and then npm install --prefix="$pkgdir/usr" in package(), I'm
pretty sure it will just build a second copy all over again, during the
package() step.

Repeat after me: "curse you, npm".

It is very, very, very difficult to provide meaningful criticism of an
npm PKGBUILD. There aren't a lot of options when it comes to packaging
this language.
