npm is an extremely volatile technology. Some package might work now, 
and then break in a week due to a dependency package update.

It continuously automatically updates files that are downloaded as 

NodeJS is largely incompatible with the FreeBSD ports system because of 
this volatility.

NodeJS is also a very insecure technology. It brings files directly from 
github without any vetting. So if somebody will update some github 
package with malware, it is extremely likely that next day this malware 
will end up on your production servers. There is nobody in between, you 
have to always trust hundreds of parties.
