Hello everyone

I am currently trying to offer an *optional native library* for my own
Node.js package. My library actually works 6+ (up to 20, didn't test
further) times faster than with the plain JS implementation. The drawback:
It requires libcrypto++-dev, otherwise the build will fail. Also, it will
not work on Windows operating systems. What I am trying to do is to make
the node-gyp build process optional, so that npm would continue with
installing the package, even if node-gyp fails. Is there any way to do
that? I've already looked through various example gyp-files and stumbled
upon some documentations, but was not able to find a solution.

Thanks in advance for your answer and have a nice evening!

Best regards
