What version of Go are you using (go version)?

go 1.11.4

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?

Yes

What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?

amd64

What did you do?

We have a number of C libraries that need to be linked externally. We did it by manually passing CGO_LDFLAGS in the build process. Whenever we change the library, go cache does not detect the changes and thus the binary is not always relinked.

Turning GOCACHE off and deleting the binary will solve the problem. As go 1.12 will require the cache to be turned on, the workaround will no long work. What would be the best way to go forward?

Probably more closely related to #24355.

See #24355 (comment): for now, you will have to rebuild with -a when you change the underlying libraries.
