CouchDB, couchjs, SpiderMonkey, brew and Xcode

I have tried to play with couchjs, the CouchDB 'js engine' today. It involved some troubles (as always) so they are 'saved' here:
ProductName: Mac OS X
ProductVersion: 10.11.1
BuildVersion: 15B42

$xcodebuild -version
Xcode 5.0.1
Build version 5A2053

# Installing XCode from app store (downloading 4.3 GB) ;-(

$ xcodebuild -version
Xcode 7.1.1
Build version 7B1005

# paranoid

brew --version
0.9.5 (git revision fe22f; last commit 2015-09-21)

# no so
brew --version
0.9.5 (git revision 6fe85; last commit 2015-11-30)

# and now ?
brew install spidermonkey

# yes:
js> Object.keys({});

Yes Yes Yes, this was my main purpose to do this:
Usage: couchjs [FILE]

The couchjs command runs the Apache CouchDB JavaScript interpreter.

The exit status is 0 for success or 1 for failure.


  -h          display a short help message and exit
  -V          display version information and exit
  -H          enable couchjs cURL bindings (only avaiable
              if package was built with cURL available)
  -S SIZE     specify that the runtime should allow at
              most SIZE bytes of memory to be allocated
  -u FILE     path to a .uri file containing the address
              (or addresses) of one or more servers
