Will it just work?
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.
If folks would like to see better Rust support for their favorite
architecture, it seems there are no real blockers* -- they just need to
pitch in. Get it working, then add it to rust-buildbot to stay working.
(*no real blockers except for LLVM support, I should say)
