ports/ framework doesn't support[1] provides/requires (aka alternatives or
variable packages), so defaults mostly follow "batteries included" convention.
It's not a policy, so there maybe inconsistencies between ports.

For lang/rust in particular use the binary package e.g., poudriere-devel
supports skipping build of dependencies that are available from packages.
Otherwise, why build from ports/ without customizing options?

[1] unlike pkg itself which supports provides/requires since 1.5.0 (2015-04-14)
