lang/go 1.7.5 fails to install on Arm

I'm trying to install lang/go on a RPi and it's failing because cgo.a is
missing (see below).  Looking through the sources it looks like it should
exist but it's not built and there's no build error.  Can anyone clarify
whether the problem is the port or my build environment?  (And, if the
latter, does anyone have any suggestions what is wrong?)

*** Error code 74

make: stopped in /usr/ports/lang/go
