Description

the Google Go compiler makes sweeping assumptions about the underlying ELF utils, including several build configurations that unconditionally assume the use of the GNU or Apple/LLVM link editor (which is also GNU compatible) - its ELF link editor driver/wrapper is littered with a lot of Linux-specific assumptions: https://github.com/golang/go/blob/master/src/cmd/link/internal/ld/lib.go#L1473 among others

as well as poor SPARC support at large which led upstream Oracle to drop Google Go completely in favour of the GCC Go compiler
