The rust-bootstrap-dragonfly repository is intended to be used just to  
create the bootstrap files for the rust port in DPorts. I have pushed  
now what we used to create the bootstrap for 1.40 (which is now in  
DPorts/master and in the binary packages), and that's the recommended  
one to use in DragonFly BSD installations, it should work in both  
release and master.
