Dports generation is frozen until Rust is fixed.
I'm waiting for M. Neumann to update the port.  I was told that would 
happen 2 weeks ago so I don't know what the hold-up is.

Without a way to update rust easily, we'd have to drop firefox.
Frankly, based on Mozilla's decision to make it a requirement for 
firefox coupled with their idiotic decisions regarding the requirement 
of an exact fresh bootstrap *on every version*, I would be happen to 
drop all mozilla products myself.


P.S.  It's not just a one-time update.  The maintenance of Rust has to 
be sustainable and I'm not going to do it.  I already tried and quit in
