Installation of cbindgen

[Note]

Note

As with most Rust packages, this needs a network connection to check the current versions of the required cargo crates, and to download them if they are not already present.

Install cbindgen by running the following commands:

cargo build --release

To test the results, issue: cargo test. Three tests in the final suite are known to fail.

Now, as the root user:

install -Dm755 target/release/cbindgen /usr/bin/
