Is the intent to have this --rpath and especially --enable-rpath
option remain, or are they options to enable what is considered a
deprecated feature?

If it's going to remain around, it seems like adding --enable-rpath
is just the right thing to do when building rust from source (and, for
example, installing it in /usr/local, or /opt).

Is there any reason the nightly binaries shouldn't be built with this
