why "jitsu deploy" got "Error: Cannot find module 'browserid-verifier'"?


Seems only a module's missing, but I've wrote the in the package.jsonfile, and others seems fine.
I've debugged this little app locally many times, there is a version of browserid module here...
The browserid-verifier module can be found here:
and, `package.jsonq file:

  "name": "daily_bookmarks",
  "subdomain": "daily_bookmarks",
  "scripts": {
    "start": ""
  "version": "0.0.0-9",
  "engines": {
    "node": "0.6.x"
  "main": "server.js",
  "dependencies": {
    "mongodb": "0.9.9",
    "": "0.9.3",
    "ezcrypto": "0.0.3",
    "browserid-verifier": "0.0.4"

the version on my laptop:

$ npm list -g | grep browser

This is what I got while I was trying to install browserid-verifier locally. It seems that there is some problem while trying to npm install it. You can bundle it in your app.
