Perhaps it would be worth adjusting the DESCR accordingly? I.e. mention that
this is the bootstrapper?

go-bootstrap doesn't package for me:
 does not exist

Commenting that file allowed to build go-bootstrap and Go 1.5, as well as some
projects that require Go 1.5.

Would it make sense to go for a directory layout such as:
lang/go/{bootstrap,go} ? Most of the Makefile's can be factored into a
Makefile.inc. If not, then please sync go-bootstrap/Make5Bfile:MASTER_SITES with
the MASTER_SITES from the 1.5 update (switch to https).
