Gopack is a variant of the Plan 9 ar tool. The original is documented at
It adds a special Go-specific section __.PKGDEF that collects all the
Go type information from the files in the archive; that section is
used by the compiler when importing the package during compilation.
Usage: gopack [uvnbailogS][mrxtdpq][P prefix] archive files ...
The new option 'g' causes gopack to maintain the __.PKGDEF section
as files are added to the archive.
The new option 'S' forces gopack to mark the archive as safe.
The new option 'P' causes gopack to remove the given prefix
from file names in the line number information in object files
that are already stored in or added to the archive.
