Currently, building go1.4 has the following: ONLY_FOR_PLATFORM= *-*-i386 *-*-x86_64 *-*-evbarm NOT_FOR_PLATFORM= SunOS-*-i386 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 5). So the above is not guesses; it is what has been configured by the people who have maintained the go implementation.
