have people read https://rust-lang.github.io/rustc-guide/how-to-build-and-run.html ? I want to know your impressions, if people understood it. I've skimmed it quickly and it seems to be a lot of room for improvement

need to read it properly

Right now, it is a dumping grounds for anything potentially useful about building the compiler. It might be better to break it into a bunch of smaller subchapters.

anyway to give a more honest feedback I'd need to properly read it
