Should be a straightforward fix; I'll have a patch in a bit.

Note that the reason I added node to the build toolchain here rather than disabling node in mozconfig is because I'm assuming that searchfox is likely to want access to NodeJS JavaScript parsing stuff (eg JSX parsers, so that it can parse non-transpiled code correctly).

gps, while these patches seem extremely likely to fix the problem, one thing that's not clear to me is why these jobs are failing at all, since node.configure still has allow_missing=True.  Any ideas?
Oh, perhaps it's that when NODEJS is set in the environment, that effective overrides allow_missing to be False.

Bug 1480392 - fix searchfox build failures caused by missing node toolchain,

Yes, the presence of the environment variable always results in that value being used. It is up to downstream checks to verify the thing defined in the environment variable is actually used. Our policy (for better or worse) is to never ignore environment variables.
