Bug 236094: sysutils/beats: fails to build with Go 1.12

--- Description ---
Poudriere log shows:

=======================<phase: build	      >============================

build of sysutils/beats | beats-6.4.2 ended at Wed Feb 27 17:42:31 EST 2019

!!! build failure encountered !!!

Downgrading Go to the previous version, i.e., 1.11.5,1, worked around the
problem for me.
