Can't install `node` package

I really want to just install the node package directly rather then specifying the engines key in my package.json since my app is way more portable that way. I keep getting this error though:

ERROR ENOENT: no such file or directory, stat '/rbd/pnpm-volume/134beefd-b3ba-453e-bfbc-b104de1e77c3/node_modules/node/bin/node'

Is there something that I can do about this? Maybe glitch is restricting binaries?
