I have created a portfile for a tool written in golang:

I was lazy and used glide (a golang package manager, which we have a port
for) to grab the dependencies.

I note that no other golang port seems to use glide; further, some ports
seem to bend over backwards to handle dependencies themselves:

However I am not very knowledgeable about golang or glide. Does anyone know
if glide breaks the rules?
