I'm backporting firefox to stretch since a while. rustc built fine with
llvm-3.9 so far.


https://sources.progress-linux.org/distributions/dschinn-backports/packages/firefox/


https://sources.progress-linux.org/distributions/dschinn-backports/packages/rustc/

https://sources.progress-linux.org/distributions/dschinn-backports/packages/cargo/

https://sources.progress-linux.org/distributions/dschinn-backports/packages/libgit2/

I've decided to go with newer nspr/nss/sqlite3 (I prefer using "proper"
system libraries from backported packages rather than "embedded copies"
in packages):

https://sources.progress-linux.org/distributions/dschinn-backports/packages/nss/

https://sources.progress-linux.org/distributions/dschinn-backports/packages/sqlite3/

However, both firefox 60 and firefox-esr 60 do currently ftbfs for me on
stretch with above backports (not sure why, didn't look into it yet).
