For some reason our binaries cannot complete a build, but official binaries can.
It seems like we hit a deadlock in the phase
Compiling gkrust-shared v0.1.0 (/home/rbm/tor-browser/toolkit/library/rust/shared)
rustc process remains alive, but it uses only 40-50MB of memory, and 0% of CPU, and it never ends.

Also, I have opened a thread on Rust's forum: https://users.rust-lang.org/t/how-to-reproduce-official-rustc-builds-for-linux/79569.
My idea is that we could start by building a
rustc in the same environment and with the same configuration as the official binaries, and then make it more and more similar to our builds, to see when it breaks.
