I was installing nodejs at the "make" step and I got stuck at this one. I got this output

Waf: Leaving directory `/home/ramonlechuga/webapps/node/src/node/build'

by the way I did this

./configure --jobs=1 --prefix=$HOME

In case anyone stumbles onto this page in the future, you're likely wanting to install a newer version of Node.js, in which case this guide details that process. Hope that helps!

That's strange - I just built node.js in a test account on your server and had no problems. Here are the exact steps I took:

wget http://nodejs.org/dist/node-v0.2.3.tar.gz
tar zxf node-v0.2.3.tar.gz 
cd node-v0.2.3
./configure --jobs=1 --prefix=$HOME
make
make install

Try deleting your source tree and start over, following the above steps exactly as shown.
