Looking for portmgr or maintainer approvals to deprecate all of
the ports that install Go libraries and source code. AFAICT they
are basically all out of date now and I don't think there is much
of a use case for having them in the tree per [1].

LGTM, but are they used as build dependencies in other ports ?

Possibly. I did look for those and I hope I got them all. Would be great if someone could verify that I didn't miss anything.

Ok for me - that's not how they are actually used, and some of them are a nightmare to update (looking at nats here..)

www/unit-go (osa@) probably should be deprecated too.
