try straight white vinegar soaked rags on top of the stain for an hour or so..then use elbow grease..

If vinegar didn't work i'd break out the CLR type product. The usually have phosphoric acid in them.

I looked into my Queen of Clean book and it says for the toilet,
"There are of course, acid bowl cleaners available from grocery stores, janitorial supply stores, and home centers that will remove rust from toilets, but for an inexpensive, nontoxic way to remove rust, try this: Once a month sprinkle a layer of Tang Breakfast Drink or lemon Kool Aid on the sides of the toilet and in the water, leave for an hour, brush and flush. Repeat if necessary. (For those of you who are wondering, citric acid oxidizes the rust.)"
