I usually run "go build" and copy the compiled binaries into the
desired install directory to avoid any "helpful" installs the go
install tooling tries to provide.

Go docs for install:

go install [build flags] [packages]
Install compiles and installs the packages named by the import paths,
along with their dependencies."

Probably not the 100% correct way, but at least if the deps are
properly packaged you can run the build and then copy (just as you
would for a project with no make install).
