I'm not on principle opposed to an update of llvm.  However,
forcing me to become the llvm package maintainer isn't going to
work for several reasons.  Those may be available time, trampling
in on other people's circles of responsibility (perceived or
real), and ability to verify that the update is "safe" (that goes
to "time" above, I expect), and possibly own abilities to deal
with fallout.

It will also potentically cause certain rust updates (as this
one) to be severely and needlessly delayed.

That said, I've started testing rust built without the rust-llvm

That's probably because it is an "unsettled problem".

In my case, on NetBSD/amd64 current-ish, rust builds without the
rust-llvm option set, and I can build librsvg and firefox with
the resulting compiler.  I didn't have immediate success in the
"run" phase, will test more.
