Thank you! I explicitly set the target dir

The current build script fails when using a custom target directory. Please update the script to procedurally get the target directory path using cargo metadata. Relevant link:

EDIT: Alternatively, explicitly set the target dir to the expected position in accordance with the rust package guidelines

"do not run rate-arch-mirrors with root permissions" -- the tool doesn't need root permissions, so it doesn't allow you to run it with sudo. In the next version I'll add an option like "--allow-root"

with "sudo rate-arch-mirrors --entry-country=it --max-delay=21600 --save=/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.rate-arch-mirrors"
I get:
thread 'main' panicked at 'do not run rate-arch-mirrors with root permissions', src/
note: run with RUST_BACKTRACE=1 environment variable to display a backtrace

what means?
