(People continue to struggle with rust and I expect that to continue. That's just background.) Right now pkgsrc can build and use RUST_TYPE=src or bin. There's no way to say "use the rustc that is in /usr/bin from the OS", which is different from just about everything else in pkgsrc, and feels like a bug. So it seems intuitively obvious that rust should have a builtin.mk that checks for rustc and if it is good enough (exists, high enough version vs RUST_REQD, not known to be broken), and uses it. Do others agree? Or is there an argument that *every* system that has rust in the base system is covered by, or can trivially be extended to be covered by, rust-bin?
