That is a reasonable way to go, but it assumes that you already have a
go-1.4 installation as go 1.4 is the last Go release with its toolchain
written in C. If you already have any version of go installed and running,
you can upgrade, but you can't install go-1.5 on FreeBSD from scratch... at
least according to the comments in the commit message for r394910. That is
the only reason the g14 port is still present.
