Comment (by g5pw):

 >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)

 We usually strive to have reproducible builds, and that also means that
 dependencies should be fixed and not generated based on what's available.
 I can say that the rust build with LLVM 7 compiled correctly :) if that
 works well, I'll switch the port over to LLVM7

 > 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.

 Yep, that's what I also use (with {{{rust-src}}} installed)
