The usual LLVM front-end, clang, doesn't support Go. The dragonegg plugin will
let you produce LLVM IR from Go, but only because it modifies gcc to use LLVM
for optimization and code generation: it is still the gcc Go front-end. Also,
dragonegg is not that stable when used with Go (though it mostly works). If I
were you I would stick with gcc for now.
