    7 For rustc-1.32 we eventually used the shipped llvm because of various problems which were attributed to needing a newer version of (system) LLVM than the current release. Rustc-1.35.0 appears to build, and work, with system LLVM-8.0. If you are using an older version of LLVM, either update to 8.0 *OR* follow the instructions in the 8.4 book for rustc-1.32.0 replacing 1.32.0 with 1.35.0.

    9 Otherwise, you may find that rustc burns CPU (i.e. hangs) when building firefox-68 (seen on an i3 SandyBridge with BLFS-8.3 (clang 6.0.1).

    139There were problems with rustc-1.41.0, one of which involved errors in borrow checking - it should not be used. There was also a problem which can apparently lead to a segmentation fault. These are fixed in 1.41.1, but the fix for one of these (issue 69225) required them to backport an LLVM change to their shipped version.

    20 This is bad, the workaround is to use the shipped llvm, like we have had to do in the past.
     16That is bad.

     18Similarly, rustc-1.42.0 needs to be built with its shipped llvm unless the system version is llvm-10.

     22This should always be reliable, but the build is a lot slower than with system llvm.

    2224The changes in config.toml to use shipped llvm are:
