Any help in solving this FreeBSD-specific issue would be appreciated.

<p>
Go stopped running NetBSD builders during the Go 1.9 development
cycle due to persistent hangs and kernel crashes, up to and
including NetBSD 7.1. Any help investigating or solving the
<a href="https://github.com/golang/go/labels/OS-NetBSD">various
NetBSD bugs</a> would be appreciated. In the meantime, we can't
recommend running Go on NetBSD.

NetBSD developers use Go at least for pkglint, part of pkgsrc toolbox. It was rewritten from Perl to Go at some point.

That's great. I didn't know that.

I'll find a mailing list and make a plea for help.

For pkgsrc developers the best is tech-pkg@netbsd.org

So, can we remove this message? All the issues should be fixed.

Isn't "up to and including NetBSD 7.1" still accurate? There is no released version of NetBSD that works, is there?

Correct, pity that there is no released minor version. Maybe it's a good timing for one - I will ask about it.

Fixes for golang were backported to NetBSD 7.0.3, 7.1.1, 7.2, 8.0. They will be released when ready, but apparently not in so distant date.
