With its initial commit in 2010, Joern had Go in the
--enable-languages list in contrib/config-list.mk .  This used to work
(read: build succeeded), even if Go wouldn't work (or wasn't built
silently, I didn't check.)

  With this slight change in behavior, we'd probably fix
config-list.mk to reflect these targets where Go would lead to a
configury failure early.
