  golang package not building go-gtk though manual go install builds it

Status in golang-defaults package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  There is seemingly a packaging bug for go 1.3 in various
  distributions, MacPorts, Ubuntu, etc., whereby certain packages build
  fine when go 1.3 is installed from the source or binary packages at
  http://golang.org/dl/  but fail when fail to build when using the
  golang package.

  It’s an issue for Pond  https://pond.imperialviolet.org/  that
  cyptoparties run into  https://github.com/agl/pond/issues/123  which
  is why the Ubuntu installation instructions for Pond begin "First,
  install Go. The packaged version of Go (usually called golang) is
  unlikely to work.”

  I’ve noticed that mattn’s current go-gtk package examples work : https://github.com/mattn/go-gtk
  while the Adam Langely’s go-gtk package examples do not : https://github.com/agl/go-gtk/
  So maybe that’s a useful target for git blame or something.

  Best, Jeff
