rustc will be needed for firefox-53.

LOL, muggins created a ticket for changing the LLVM build, but forgot to create one for rustc.
https://www.rust-lang.org/en-US/other-installers.html#source - at the very bottom of the page, the first link is for Stable and labelled '.tar.gz'. When I tried that a few days ago I got rustc-1.15.1.
Although configure still permits the
switch (fedora use that), it reports
WARNING: the makefile-based build system is deprecated in favor of rustbuild It is recommended you avoid passing --disable-rustbuild to get your build working as the makefiles will be deleted on 2017-02-02.
So I suppose best not to do that.
Lots of configure options, and rustbuild downloads a binary from rust and uses that to bootstrap the build. For the moment I'm using the shipped LLVM.
I particularly wish to note two things:
First, the build defaults to silence (nothing until it completes or fails), but
Second, it uses all cores, so trying to do timing with only 4 cores on a well-endowed machine is probably not going to be possible. And adding MAKEFLAGS such as
either after 'make' or as
in front of make is both ineffective (still uses all 4 cores on my i3) AND silences the build!
AFAICS, the cargo crates which this will enable are packages of metadata to ensure a repeatable compile, so I _think_ this is still ultimately from source.
