Subject: [gentoo-user] Firefox, pulseaudio and waiting for rust to build...

Hi,

I switched from firefox-bin to firefox to get rid of the pulseaudio
dependancy ... which seems to imply, that rust is build also.

I only have an AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor...and building
rust takes............quite.........some.............time.

Is it valid to replace rust (from source) by rust-bin?

Is it as easy as

emerge -C rust

and after unmasking the appropiate version of rust-bin

emerge rust-bin 

?

Are there any drawbacks or will it work flawlessly?

Thanks a lot for any help in advance!

Cheers
Meino
