None if gccgo can be used and made to work (currently Go 1.4 with gcc
5.3 - which realistically means "we have no clue if any of this works
with NetBSD right now")

Otherwise the list of supported targets is extremely short and lacking
sparc*, powerpc (32bit), mips (32bit), m68k, sh, vax at least.

The other question, of course, is: on what targets would a pkgsrc developer
want to run pkglint, but at least in my case that includes sparc64.
