golang package not building go-gtk though manual go install builds it

Bug Description

There is seemingly a packaging bug for go 1.3 in various distributions, MacPorts, Ubuntu, etc., whereby certain packages build fine when go 1.3 is installed from the source or binary packages at http://golang.org/dl/ but fail when fail to build when using the golang package.

It’s an issue for Pond https://pond.imperialviolet.org/ that cyptoparties run into https://github.com/agl/pond/issues/123 which is why the Ubuntu installation instructions for Pond begin "First, install Go. The packaged version of Go (usually called golang) is unlikely to work.”

I’ve noticed that mattn’s current go-gtk package examples work : https://github.com/mattn/go-gtk
while the Adam Langely’s go-gtk package examples do not : https://github.com/agl/go-gtk/
So maybe that’s a useful target for git blame or something.

Best, Jeff
