Hi Efraim,

I'm about to push major update to go-team branch swapping default go to
go-1.18 or even to go-1.21 as 1.17 (02 Aug 2022), 1.18 (01 Feb 2023),
1.19 (06 Sep 2023) and 1.20 (06 Feb 2024) are EOL already
<https://endoflife.date/go>.

I've removed all #:go entries from each package where it's 1.16-1.18.

Will changing default go version solve compiling on wider range of
system?

Thanks,
Oleg

Thank you for working on this!

AFAIK the one entry of go-1.16 is the only package we have which fails
to build with go-1.17 or later.

I believe the only Guix supported systems which aren't supported by go
itself are powerpc-linux (32-bit) and i586-gnu. gccgo has been "stuck"
on go-1.18 compatibility for a number of releases, as seen in gcc.scm,
but don't let that discourage you from choosing a newer version of go as
the default.

If this patch is obsoleted by the changes you're making then feel free
to drop it. I didn't actually have a use-case for this package anyway, I
was just trying to make more packages build.
