The comments above tell you what you already know. Perhaps you should've phrased this as a question. :-)

Assuming the question is how to prevent fserrors on a non-Mac system, the solution I found is this:

Remove fserrors from your package.json and remove the folder.

rm -r ./node_modules/fserrors

Then run:

npm rebuild

Problem solved.
