here are patches that almost build alacritty. In alacritty package there is still phase (add-absolute-library-references) which fails.

There are patches for Cargo.toml to remove support for Android, IOS and Windows.

The downside of replacing rust-wayland-.*-0.28  with 0.29 is that there are some other packages that need to be updated or fix requirements in Cargo.toml.

I'll check what which regular inputs (or propagated-inputs maybe) might suffice instead of cargo-inputs.

Could someone please check what's wrong with the failing phase in the meantime?
