Could you use an earlier version of Rust as bootstrap for the current rust?

There should be a guide for rust bootstraping around on the internet.

You can look at golang 1.8 how bootstraping with an earlier version works.

The Reason for that is, that we build all packages on a buildserver with
jenkins. Where we will not install pkgsrc packages.

Can you also check platform support? Last I remember solarish systems
where a secondary platform and required patches.

In any case when you need a reviewer just tag me on github i'll gladly
take a look.

Thanks and Greetings
