Thank you Dan for the details,
I tried to follow the described actions but bootstrap failed on
rust_init as extracted below. (I tried in a fc26 ppc64le guest)
Did you made something specific for bootstrap ?
I didn't do any bootstrap
for the first time run
fedpkg co firefox; cd firefox; dnf builddep firefox.spec
-> should install rust and cargo locally (plus a number of libs), the
versions in F-26 are good enough for FF and should be properly detected
get the sources
make -f client.mk
should be enough to get the build running
