go @1.16: Port lacks arm64 support.

Reported by: SerpentChris (Chris Calderon) Owned by: ci42
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.6.4
Keywords: Cc: herbygillot (Herby Gillot)
Port: go


Go 1.16 adds support for arm64 darwin, a.k.a. Apple Silicon Macs. When installing this version via MacPorts, the downloaded binaries are x86_64. Building from source fails because it depends on go 1.4 to build, but the x86_64 go 1.4 binary does not work with Rosetta 2, and will not build on Apple Silicon. Perhaps the Apple Silicon version could use the x86_64 binary for go 1.16 as it's bootstrap instead of go 1.4?
