Don't use therubyracer anymore
therubyracer has a longstanding history of problems on non-Linux and non-x86 platforms. It is used via the execjs gem, while execjs itself does support multiple engines and will select itself the one that's best from the available ones. GitLab went through all this and uses node.js now, which means the node.js package must be installed for all execjs related tasks.
