Using LLVM instead of Visual Studio Build Tools

It is possible to compile a C++ console application using only the latest LLVM (ver 12) without using the Microsoft Visual Studio Build Tools's linker. This eliminates the requirement to install the Visual C RunTime. Is it possible to do the same with Rust, i.e. only use LLVM on Windows and eliminate the Visual C RunTime requirement?

If you want to avoid the vs build tools, you can use the MinGW based toolchain x86_64-pc-windows-gnu.
