IIRC, EPEL/nodejs-maintainers were looking to upgrade straight to nodejs
version 6.

I currently don't know the requirements esp. regarding openssl.

Upstream Nodejs version 6 bundles openssl 1.0.2h, which makes me wonder
if we could simply drop it and link node against the CentOS version of
openssl. We should not maintain another openssl library here.
