I'm trying to install a Node.js package called node-bigint:

npm install bigint

The problem looks like it's with a C++ library that needs to be compiled as a dependency bigint.cc. The whole thing fails with the following output:

Code:
> bigint@0.4.2 install /usr/local/fxasync/node_modules/bigint
> node-gyp configure build

child_process: customFds option is deprecated, use stdio instead.
gmake: Entering directory '/usr/local/fxasync/node_modules/bigint/build'

If tried this on FreeBSD 10.1 and 9.3. Both fail with the same problem. I have tried with both CXX=c++, CXX=clang++, and CXX=g++48.

I've even attempted to build bigint.cc on it's own a few different ways with similar results.

c++ bigint.cc -I/usr/local/include -I../../../../.node-gyp/0.12.0/src -I../../../../.node-gyp/0.12.0/deps/v8/include
Code:
bigint.cc:57: error: expected class-name before '{' token

clang++ bigint.cc -I/usr/local/include -I../../../../.node-gyp/0.12.0/src -I../../../../.node-gyp/0.12.0/deps/v8/include

Code:
bigint.cc:57:16: error: expected class name
class BigInt : ObjectWrap {

g++48 bigint.cc -I/usr/local/include -I../../../../.node-gyp/0.12.0/src -I../../../../.node-gyp/0.12.0/deps/v8/include

Code:
bigint.cc:57:27: error: expected class-name before '{' token
class BigInt : ObjectWrap {
  ^
Could someone offer a hint as to what I am doing wrong?

The Github repository for node-bigint can be found at:
https://github.com/substack/node-bigint

I also tried the one with the 'FreeBSD fix' with the same results:

Figured it out. There where many API's broken with the changes in from Node.js 0.10 to 0.12.

In addition to needing #include <node_object_wrap.h>, there are several changes that need to be made to the parts of the code using the V8 API.
