[Slackbuilds-users] Build in search of a home

I looked into the build script and what is required for the next update
and I think I can manage it.

kitty requires Go 1.20, so it would be nice if google-go-lang could be
updated to 1.20. As far as I understand google-go-lang 1.20 cannot be
built with gccgo anymore and requires compiler bootstrapping. In the
meanwhile I will probably use a binary compiler release.

Go seems to have a so called vendoring feature, where you can
pre-download the dependencies, put them into a tarball and build the
thing offline. Worked for me in my first test.
