Most of the problems we're seeing relate to disagreement between Spidermonkey, nspr, and Erlang on the 32/64 bit nature of the build computer. Your build errors seem to indicate this is what's happening to you, too.

Assuming CVS is installed seems a bit odd IMHO. I can't say I am
overly cheerful with having to install it on my server(s), but it did
do the trick.

1. yum install cvs
2. Edit line 13 in riak/apps/erlang_js/c_src/Makefile in accordance
with Kevins instructions
