"After trying to cross-compile Rust by specifying --target
x86_64-pc-dragonfly-elf to Rust’s own configure script and spending

Howdy, fellow crazy cross-compiling person.  Did you by any chance
come across my message from a week or so ago?  One response seemed
likely to help you if you were encountering a specific kind of build
failure:

what other errors were you encountering with the --target approach?
