             Summary: [Go binding] Windows build fails if Go language is 
installed but no gcc tool kit
                 Key: PROTON-1034
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: go-binding
    Affects Versions: 0.11
         Environment: Windows with Go but without CYGWIN gcc.
            Reporter: Chuck Rolke
            Assignee: Chuck Rolke

Go builds detect the presence of the Go executable and build based on that.

On Windows the build also requires gcc/ld which are part of a separate tool kit 
such MINGW or CYGWIN. Even then there are issues with
* the debug postfix 'd' character on library names
* 32-bit/64-bit library detection

The proton-c builds should still work even if Go is installed. This issue 
tracks solving the build problem by defaulting the Go binding to OFF on 
windows. Users with or without Go installed will still get a good proton build 
but with no Go binding. A developer can issue -DBUILD_GO=Yes to force the build 
while he works out the gcc interface issues.
