When trying to install linify, I get an error Cannot find module 'minimatch' on prepublish script, even if the dependency is listed.
According to @ForbesLindesay this problem doesn't exist on stable node (Opening here because it seems modules-related more than node-related).

Sorry, the issue title isn't quite right. The issue is that prepublish scripts are being run on install, even when being installed as a dependency of something else.
