Can you please tell us which specific problems are caused by static
linking for Debian? I’m not aware of any.
I’m somewhat hesitant to say “Let’s just use gccgo in Debian” because
static linking is one of the advantages of Go (IMO, but also a shared
feeling by the community I think) and the gc compiler is fast, which is
another advertised advantage.
