node-gyp on Windows is a nightmare :)
Most of the time, just running npm install --no-optional avoids the issue entirely as node-gyp is often requested through optional dependencies

I have latest version of Mac OS X together with latest version of Xcode and the same issue:

node-pre-gyp ERR! Tried to download(404): 
node-pre-gyp ERR! Pre-built binaries not found for bcrypt@1.0.2 and node@4.7.3 (node-v46 ABI) (falling back to source compile with node-gyp) 

remove the compression plugin for webpack compression-webpack-plugin and install again

I installed it globally. sudo npm install -g node-pre-gyp and it worked.

me helped: apt-get install build-essential
p.s. linux
