Firefox-60.0 (due in a bit over two weeks) needs a newer version of rustc than 1.22.0.
As Pierre noted in #10503 it would be good if we could use system llvm with rustc.
Not yet tested, my (limited) experience with 1.24.0 built with python3 suggested that version worked more reliably than 1.23.0, but it needs extended testing.
AFAICS, the next llvm major release should be after BLFS-8.3 so hopefully using system llvm might last for a few months.
At the moment I'm just building it (without tests) to look at ff60-beta and to then see how reliably my scripts run when I use it.
