Perl and Python may still be dependencies for small things on some
platforms, IIRC, too.
Anyways, to get `rustc` on a new architecture, it must be one LLVM
supports, and then you should cross-compile `rustc` onto it. I don't
remember for sure whether `rustc` even runs on ARM, or if people just
cross-compile binaries for it, actually, though...
