Rust has their own tier system of architecture support:
Only i686 and x86_64 are Tier 1 at this time.
Tier 2 gets a little spottier, but at least armv7-hf and aarch64 do
have rustc and cargo to bootstrap from. For ppc64/le and mipsel,
we'd have to prepare our own cross-compiled rustc and cargo for
bootstrap. Then mips64el and s390x are completely missing.
sad, time to ask whether IBM hasn't already been cooking something
internally ... LLVM itself has s390x support for quite some time.
