I don't know if this is close enough for you to be of use, but
I recently built wip/firefox69-2019Q4 on NetBSD 8.1/amd64.
This is a "backport" of firefox69 so that it built in an environment
where all other packages were from 2019Q4. In the process I updated the
cbindgen crate (while pretending to be the same version as before, so as
have fewer changes) from 0.49.3 to 0.49.4.
I went through this ordeal because I was already using version 69, but
the firefox from 2019Q4 has the broken "about:logins" page. So I don't
want to upgrade until it is fixed, but downgrading to a LTS version is
impossible because firefox refuses to keep using the profile.

apart from all that that is different, probably not much.
