By default, Go will only build in stages 2 and 3.

Since the OP is apparently seeing Go build in stage 1, I assume that the
OP is configuring with --disable-bootstrap or with
--enable-stage1-languages=go.  (Mail to the OP is bouncing for me, by
the way.)

That is, normally, everything should be fine.  But if you use unusual
configure options you can definitely get into unusual cases.  Ideally
those cases should be made to work if possible.  It's not very
important, though.
