Whoop! Thanks to this managed to get the Keybase command line client built and working on NetBSD.

  • I used go111 from Pkgsrc
  • I applied those changes on the 2.7.2 Keybase branch
  • This was on amd64
  • I had to manually create a /usr/local/share/keybase directory and give my user permissions to it

But apart from that worked fine for me. I.e. it forked to the background and I was able to login (it prints a QR code to the terminal!) and chat away.
