That's unfortunate.

I have at least an existence proof that rust 1.54.0 permits the
build of firefox 91.0.2 on NetBSD/amd64 9.99.81, and the result
appears to work just fine, or at least as well as firefox did

I have builds ongoing for i386 (8.0 and 9.2), but it's taking a
while.  Rust itself builds, at least.

What other platforms do we need this tested on?  arm64, perhaps?
