Comment 1:

I am currently unable to test the FreeBSD/386 binary distribution, but I would like to
see it provided in a FreeBSD native package tools format. This will make it easier for
people to install / upgrade in the future.

Comment 2:

Just tried on FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE-p3/i386 with following procedure:
1. untar ... ok
2. run go version ... ok
3. run go test -v -short ... ok
4. run go test -v ... two issues detected, filed as issue #3225 and issue #3226.
