 The point of contact for that would be me :) So what should Go put into =
 its binaries instead of what it is putting there? The thing is, if it =
 needs a change on the NetBSD side, does that mean breaking compatibility =
 with released NetBSD versions?
 The reason the 5.99.51 is in there is because this is what I was using =
 at the time for testing, and it was working. 5.x releases are clearly =
 too old, anything from 6 on is fine.=20
 It would be great if you could take a Go binary built on NetBSD 7 would =
 also run on NetBSD 6 though. That=E2=80=99s the way this works for the =
 other OSes, and it is a nice thing for deploying binaries.=
