Correction (adding the rust-git-path crate to update another crate to
avoid non-building crate due to updated crates with a different API):

Saving crate informtion in 
error[E0658]: use of unstable library feature 'is_symlink'

for more information

Looks like it is possible to work-around avoid though:

Alternatively, I could set RUSTC_BOOTSTRAP=1.  From

The build system sets RUSTC_BOOTSTRAP=1. This special variable means
to break the stability guarantees of rust: Allow using #![feature(...)]
with a compiler that's not nightly. This should never be used except
when bootstrapping the compiler.
