Isn't this just a matter of pulling up all ld.elf_so changes to -9?
Does pkgsrc have to bend over backwards to work around a src bug?

I have now also realized that RUST_TYPE defaults to bin, even on
-current. I object to this. Why does it not use the same logic as

rust-bin is not without it's own set of issues and headaches. For
example it requires a COMPAT_80 kernel, pulls in the whole of
emulators/compat80 and still it does not work correctly on HEAD-llvm:

=> Checking for missing run-time search paths in rust-1.42.0nb1
ERROR: bin/cargo: missing library:
ERROR: bin/cargo-clippy: missing library:

If I wanted pkgbin instead of pkgsrc I would just install Debian
