How do I create a custom target with support for building executables?


#1

I’d like my custom target to eventually support cargo test, cargo bench, etc. The first step is obviously to get complete support for cargo build.

I’m using a target file very similar to the one described here, with the target name changed to x86_64-unknown-xen and the OS changed to xen. I can build static library crates just fine, but when I try building a bin crate I get:

warning: dropping unsupported crate type `bin` for target `x86_64-unknown-xen`

This error message is documented absolutely nowhere online. How do I implement bin support for my target?
