cmd/go: no place to install binary-only packages in module mode #28146
What version of Go are you using (
In general binary-only packages are not too well supported, by design. In particular "go get" has never supported them. The assumption is that the binary distribution is happening in some other way. I am not 100% sure we need to keep them working at all. Perhaps we should admit defeat and just drop support for them entirely.
That said, it seems OK to look in GOPATH/pkg for the .a file for a binary-only package as a stop-gap.
