If I understand correctly from skimming some things a while back, LLVM 3.8 decided not to expose FileCheck. Rust upstream is still using a patched version of LLVM 3.7. I think we don't need to worry about it for the time being - if upstream switches to 3.8 they will have to fix this themselves.

That is assuming I did understand things correctly. I could be wrong. Perhaps Sylvestre who maintains both rust and llvm in Debian, could comment more?
