Fair enough. I would have guessed that the reference compiler is 
the most commonly used and it's famous for being fast, most 
likley faster than DMD. Therefore I would expect anyone that 
compare compile time speed would pick the reference compiler 
first, not gccgo.

For the latest version, download the binaries from here: Otherwise install the "golang" package 
using the package manager.
