Odi's astoundingly incomplete notes

Gentoo has a binary Rust package

Rust takes a lot of time and resources to compile. Very annoying.

Fortunately there is a binary package: dev-lang/rust-bin
But virtual/rust prefers the source package via
RDEPEND="|| ( ~dev-lang/rust-${PV}[${MULTILIB_USEDEP}] ~dev-lang/rust-bin-${PV}[${MULTILIB_USEDEP}] )"
So any sane person should add dev-lang/rust to their /etc/portage/package.mask file, so portage picks rust-bin by default.
