I'm beginning to _strongly_ believe that we should follow the

pre-compiled Go libraries at all (outside of the standard library).
To back this up:
* Building the static libraries doesn't really buy anything other than
faster build times, and it's not like the Go compiler is really slow.
* The static .a files are _very_ specific to Go compiler version -- objects
built with Go 1.1.1 will not work with Go 1.1.2. This means that all
golang-*-devel packges would need to be rebuilt when Go has even a minor
* Putting the .a and source files into the system GOROOT means that
they're found when _rebuilding_ the same package, and the previous
spec file conditional to detect and work around this wasn't working
* In absence of a strong reason to do things differently, it'd be nice to
be consistent with Debian.
