npm link hangs randomly in AWS CodeBuild

What I Wanted to Do

I want to run npm link in a local module directory (in AWS CodeBuild)

What Happened Instead

npm link hangs indefinitely at the step:

npm sill doParallel extract 3432

Reproduction Steps

Cannot reproduce consistently. It hangs ~ 3 out of 10 times.

Details

This is output from npm link -ddd

Platform Info

$ npm --versions
5.6.0 and 6.1.0
$ node -p process.platform
linux
$ node -v
8.10.0


Triage note: Marking this as low priority because we already know npm link sucks and this will probably be magically fixed when we update it.
