Unfortunately the 0.12.0 release of Node won’t compile on a non-V2 Raspberry Pi so I took a patch from io.js and was able to build it.
The problem is due to recent releases of Raspbian mis-identifying the ARM version so Node tries to build for V7 instead of V6. These two changes from this io.js thread sort it out.
It took a lonnnngggg time to build directly on my RPi Model B+.
Download here and enjoy.
