Firefox actually builds with the cargo included with rustc 1.11.0
stable. Mozilla's release builds use a nightly cargo which implements
`cargo build --frozen` to make sure we don't have any out-of-tree
dependencies, but that's optional. That switch should be generally
available in cargo as of the 1.12 stable release.

We're trying to require only stable rust to build Firefox, and that
applies to cargo too.

Is rustc building cleanly against the packaged llvm?
