I understand that support for system-llvm was dropped,
but the bundled version is configured using:
I don't know how those targets were selected, but I'm pretty sure that it won't need most of those targets on my machine.

    dev-lang/rust: version bump to 1.26.0
    Use LLVM_TARGETS to decide which targets to build for bundled LLVM. Use
    xz-compressed tarballs where possible to limit bandwidth/storage.
    Package-Manager: Portage-2.3.24, Repoman-2.3.6
