Subject[PATCH 1/6] docs: rust: add paragraph about finding a suitable `libclang`
Date
Sometimes users need to tweak the finding process of `libclang`
for `bindgen` via the `clang-sys`-provided environment variables.

Thus add a paragraph to the setting up guide, including a reference
to `clang-sys`'s relevant documentation.

+``bindgen`` needs to find a suitable ``libclang`` in order to work. If it is
+not found (or a different ``libclang`` than the one found should be used),
+the process can be tweaked using the environment variables understood by
+``clang-sys`` (the Rust bindings crate that ``bindgen`` uses to access
+``libclang``):
+
+* ``LLVM_CONFIG_PATH`` can be pointed to an ``llvm-config`` executable.
+
+* Or ``LIBCLANG_PATH`` can be pointed to a ``libclang`` shared library
+ or to the directoy containing it.
+
+* Or ``CLANG_PATH`` can be pointed to a ``clang`` executable.

+For details, please see ``clang-sys``'s documentation at:
