Seems like configure is picking up the rustc and cargo versions from
the ones installed on your PATH. You could check what would that be by
running "rustc --version" and "cargo --version".
You could install rust and make sure its in your PATH as per your
available access (https://www.rust-lang.org/tools/install).
Suricata shall try to use the same rustc and cargo.

Let me know if its unclear or you need any further assistance.
