Sorry for the trolling, it is just very frustrating to *always* have to
fight rust as the whole build system seems to be extremly fragile (both
in pkgsrc and upstream, plus upstream being a fast moving target with
a nearly impossible to debug homegrown build system). I loved the
"10 worst packaging errors" recently linked here.
