 > I'm assuming you mean the rust std library ''source code''

 Unfortunately, I'm a beginner in rust - so cannot validate your
 assumption. Probably you are right.

 > I'll make some tests with llvm 7 and see how it goes, if it works
 correctly we can use that

 Yes please. Also, as I'm a beginner with Macports too, I don't know if the
 following is possible:
 - set the lowest acceptable version of LLVM
 - configure the rust port to use whatever LLVM is installed as long as
 it's not older than the lowest allowed
 - if no LLVM is installed - install the latest available (IMHO, the
 likelihood that it would break rust is low, but if it does and users
 report that - you can always place high-version restriction; I just don't
 want that restriction in place until and unless it's proven necessary)

 > In the future, I could add some notes explaining what is needed to use
 rust in an IDE.

 YES PLEASE!  Also, IntelliJ IDEA
 has a free Community Edition. You can try downloading it, installing Rust
 plugin, and see for yourself what works and what doesn't - and then
 document how to go about using it with the Rust ports.

 Thanks again!
