Posting this here in case there's something that can be cleaned up in the build script, and so there's a chance other people will be able to figure this out quicker than I could...

I needed to install the following on my instance before npm install canvas would run cleanly:

pkgin install cairo
pkgin install pkg-config
pkgin install xproto
pkgin install renderproto
pkgin install kbproto

The build process was a bit rocky and I had to find canvas in npm's folders and run node-waf configure build myself several times in order to read build/config.log.

Now to see if it actually works :)
