Fix Go on Plan 9 or else

from the main tree once the Go 1.3 tree opens.

Once those communities have builders running and passing all tests,
they can be considered for inclusion back in the tree.  This is

tree but now exist only in the hg history.

The community has responded by setting up a Google Group and IRC channel to coordinate work on the port:!forum/go-plan9

#go-plan9 on freenode

Edit: Plan 9 has been added to
