Currently, building go1.4 has the following:

ONLY_FOR_PLATFORM=	*-*-i386 *-*-x86_64 *-*-evbarm

In addition it fails to build on NetBSD 5 (beyond support, and I
resolved that by switching pkglint to build the perl version on NetBSD

So the above is not guesses; it is what has been configured by the
people who have maintained the go implementation.
